Goodbye, Sweet Liberty

A kiss farewell

Glorious distortion

Into the arms of cataclysm

Manifest Destiny

We gather at your funeral

Struggle to remember

Lowered into the earth

Whimper

Nails dig into the casket

Your cries ignored

Attention

Smile

Troopers stand at the ready

Erasing your history
