keeping balance in the land

as it measures the cost

blue skies that stretch for years

those broad stripes and bright stars

prepare our youth for tears

the Golden Calf we’ll praise

half buried in the dust

.

About face!

.

As one united nation

let us move in the same direction –>

towards a day worth remembering

and a history worth repeating
