In a treasured democracy, truth stands tall - a poem.
|The nation continues to chide
Sowing the popular seeds of distrust.
Little sympathy for politicians;
Not a shred of competence
Predates this shadowy dilemma.
Meanwhile, the gravity of truth
Is now courageously purported -
A God-given freedom and right
To doubtless transparency,
And a treasured democracy
Highlighting faith and hope.
The torrid evil lurks,
Advocating a change in attitudes
And perfunctory decency.
Destined to righteously abolish
America’s historic goals.
