Heartland haiku

John Mellencamp, Oct. 7, 1951, Seymour, Indiana

Standing up for us
Mellencamp, American,
Farmers and Main Street

Singing out for us
Small-town hearts, pain, and struggle
Telling our stories

Making art for us
60 birthdays now and still
Restless, striving, strong

Growing up with us
Surprising, celebrating
Rock on, John, rock on
