The People’s Tribune

Centuries ago,
The voice of the people
Was finally heard.

The People’s Tribune
Spoke loudly
On their side.

Over time, though,
This voice grew dim,
Then silent.

Many years later,
We the people
Resurrected the voice.

Now, though,
The voice grows dim,
And discordant.

So it is, that we the people
Must strain to hear
Only a murmur.
