On the Brown, charred crust of America's breast

Funeral homes and Beaver dams

Office parks and Rooster cages

A death is taking place

Which we should welcome with our tears

The death of Brute strength diplomacy

The death of Rude lips and vitriol

Apathetic

Myopic

Death of a nation

But death is not the end

It is a timely rebirth

Like the lush green of spring

When  the showers rinse away the blood stains and sewage

Perhaps we have another chance
