Headline Poem 3/1/14 -- Dragons of L.A.

(Photo credit L.A. Times)

Today's poem is based on this story in the Los Angeles Times about Cathy Youngblood, a woman with two degrees, who is currently cleaning rooms at a hotel. The article made me think of fearless dragons fighting back, even when it seems hopeless.

Dragons of L.A.

Dragons rebel
With shieldless
Chests
Mighty warriors with no sun
Movements calculated
Oven full of warmth
Dough rises 
But the bread isn't quite done
