DARKNESS ON THE LAND

I’m dying, she said…
Lady Liberty, tears unseen,
Covered by the falling rain
And the real lovers of liberty
Know they’re real…
 
The document that
Guarantees our rights
Under attack by those
Who wrap themselves
In the flag, while
Dishonoring the words
 
Trampling over two
Centuries of respect
For its authors…
And the rights of
We the People
Extinguishing the torch
 
Dark days have come
To a great nation…
And lies can’t hide it
The darkness that
Liberty long banished
Is upon the land…
 
The bad news unbounded
Dismantling begun…
But We the People
Have just begun to fight

Darkness must not win

      Thank you, Suzanne. This is so hard to endure, with fake patriots, neither of whom spent a day in uniform for our country, challenging the patriotism of any others who disagree with them, while they are gleefully making plans to dismantle OUR Constitution. Think about this. The last Republican elected President without relying on dirty tricks was Eisenhower. It’s mind-boggling.

        Agreed…I never thought I’d see the day when I’d be embarrassed to admit who 45 is… yet here we are🙁

        I’d thought we’d seen the worst in 2001. Who EVER could have imagined how wrong that was?
