A Nation's New Notion

(Here's a poetic entry for Thursday Thirteen’s “pick a letter of the alphabet” prompt.”)

A Nation’s New Notion

Now it is time to proclaim.
New notions can set me aflame.
Needing answers and more,
Never known heretofore,
Nudged along curiosity’s game.

Niggling name-droppers, no food for thought,
Nodding sycophants, notions store-bought.
Nonsense offers its odds
Nominating the frauds.
Needless, neutral is something I’m not.

Not to negate a nation’s belief,
Neither noticing nothing’s motif,
No, now we need novel relief.
