What is profound…
A powerful & free nation
Brought to its knees…
Yet those who
Worked the strings
Skated away with no blame

Sadly, it doesn’t end there…
As the perpetrators shift,
Prevaricate, and fool
The gullible…saying
The likes of “Up is Down”…
Will they ever wake up?

We don’t yet know
The end of the story…
Whether this nation
Will survive the all out
Assault on what made it great…
But I’m not taking any bets
