keeping balance in the land

blue skies that stretch for years

those broad stripes and bright stars

prepare our youth for tears

“Left, right, left…” we stride

to breach the great divide

We must march together

or risk this nation’s pride

If In God We Trust

but for more loot we lust

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
