Poem adds to divisions

To the Editor:

Regarding Martin Doerfler’s attempt at poetry (A Poem, Keizertimes, Nov. 22):

Emerson and Whitman are in no danger.

It is just such a sentiment that feeds the divisiveness in our country. Wouldn’t it be refreshing to actually see some non-partisan politics for a change? It seems doubtful as some continue to gloat and carry on their peavishness.

Indeed, it is now time for our president to come out of the shadows, take off his four-year campaign hat and don his leader hat.

Let’s grow up, play nice, get along.

In the meantime, get a hobby Martin.
