Susan B. Anthony

Based on the following line that Linda Mitchell shared on her clunker list, I was inspired to do some new research on this suffragist and the tradition of adding “I Voted” stickers to her grave marker.

  • Susan B. Anthony’s gravestone is covered with “I voted” stickers

I also watched a helpful biography about this important figure.

Finally, I wrote this poem with Linda’s clunker idea. It is a septercet sandwich poem, haiku-septercet-haiku.

“I voted” stickers
bejewel the headstone of
the pioneer who
died before living her own
Amendment–the Susan B.
Anthony Amendment, where
voters thank her by
taking this nation further
to justice for all.
