After tumblr being inundated with metaphor jokes its nice to see a proper serious metaphor again. Cicadas are swell little bugs. I'd like to visit the Carolinas again one day, I went there when I was a kid for my cousin's wedding and a vacation...it was pretty cool from what I remember.

Ah, sweet Carolina

This is incredibly beautiful, bordering on the sociopolitical category too, which its always nice for me to see more politically driven work. I feel like we have a shortage of that of late.

That first line really drew me in on a personal level, as well. There's something about the word of their home that has a power over Carolinians, it's strange. Lovely poem though, glad I gave it a read.

I am going to retire there one day. Some place near the outer banks. :) There's no place quite like it in the rest of the country.

I'm glad you enjoyed the poem, and appreciate the political comment behind it.

There's no place quite like it in the rest of the country. <- Important words, those. When applied to any place in any country, whether it's the same place or even the same country you were born in, it means you know where home is now.

GENIUS metaphor. And I love the image of cicadas standing together, a little army.
