A Few Lines Composed Above A State Office Building.
Tim, I think that I should see
The day that you will no longer be
Our governor, the source of great
Minnesota should not be a state
Of mediocrity. I hate
That I cringe at your sunny
All the poets interviewed agree
That a Laureate is not a necessity.
I would extend it further
To a Pawlenty second term.
I am patient. I can wait
For a stronger, better state
Where voters vote and cast you out
