Anna Eleanor Roosevelt Roosevelt

By Elvira

Cheated in life,
as in death
her life’s          work    was For ALL!
No swan, she, her inner self
shown.

Ridiculed. Cheated. Laughed at.
She held her tears
to serve ALL her country
asking nothing —
getting betrayal          from kin —
her Life’s work – not for one class/race
denied an honor
for
political
expedience
