NaPoWriMo prompt- Double dactyl poem

Eleanor Roosevelt: For the people, not above them

Higgledy, piggledy
Eleanor Roosevelt
National prodigy
Stubborn as well;

Objecting to debutantes’
Coming out socially;
Cup of tea hell.

This is not an easy form to work in...but you have done so masterfully. I don't think ER would have much use for comings out. Cup of tea hell is just plain brilliant. Vb

Thanks, it was quite a challenge for me. You're right... ER was much more of a humanitarian.

I love this piece! Roosevelt was an independent minded sort, and I have always appreciated that about her. Thank you for this, "cup of tea hell."
