Recognizing Kamala – An Acrostic Poem by Eshaan

King or Queen? Nah, she’s the Vice President bro

And Donald Trump, clearly he’s a big no!

Most people voted Joe Biden so…

Amazingly he and Kamala wanted America to grow

Less unemployment and more jobs to flow

Although the GDP after the pandemic was low.

Her audacity literally began to glow

And a woman can be VP she wants to show

Restlessly rebuilding America you know?

Restlessly destroying hate like a torpedo

Inspiration from her, others will borrow

Standing up for democracy today and tomorrow!
