lamentation for a nation that’s lost its way

in my lifetime  this nation has gone
from imperfect democracy
to altogether corrupt plutocracy,
led by a two-party system of kleptocrats,
servile automatons with lies
ever on their lips and bloodied hands
always extended for their quid pro quo.
and too many of its people
go along to get along even though
in their gut they know that it’s all
counterfeit, unseemly, perverse,
the seedy path to perdition
as a nation, as a people.  Heaven
help us all – for it seems we can
no longer help ourselves…
