Tears Of The Founders

We’ve abused our great freedoms

to reap the results

with school and church shootings

hate speech a new cult 


No respect for the flag

or sacrifice made

ignoring our veterans

despoiling their graves 


Our streets wait in ambush

where the enemy hides

to prowl in a wasteland

where evil decides 


The constitution a weapon

to pervert and inflict

traitorous courts

with laws nondescript  


And blindly we run

(toward the cliff)

 greed our marching song

narcissism the battle cry

—America is gone    


(Ardmore Pennsylvania: April, 2023)
