Poetic license questionable
December 13th, 2016
By John Collins

Poetic license indeed! With her poem “Thoughts on November 8,” (Dec. 8), Carolyn Daniel errs in three respects: (1) identifying the outcome of the recent national presidential election as a “wounding”; (2) likening the wounding to that which was inflicted on the country on 9/11 (i.e., 2001 Twin Towers tragedy, etc.); and (3) saying that the election outcome was sinful thus requiring the forgiveness of the Father. I am surprised that CSF printed the poem. It seems in this case that the newspaper owes a mea culpa for “issuing Ms. Daniel’s license.”
