After the Battle

Six slim, straight yellow sticks
stood thrilling in bright greensward
nearly cloth-yard long and none
quite vertical— as if
master archers had released
their like in volleys over fields,
these few having found no flesh
of horse or man, and so remained.

They seemed to stand
in pairs, and lacked for feathers
having up to last Election Day
been spanned with advertising
posters for a mayoral or school board
candidate, which boys who stuck them there
have now removed on pain of law.

Better wars of votes than roses
or a hundred years, boys planting signs
than planting boys.

Test:  Contrary to previous observation, some forums allow inline graphics and some do not.  The crit threads apparently do not.
