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
