This is in response to the horrible event that happened this past week.
Lady Liberty dropped her torch in the Atlantic and removed the crown from her head.
She lowered her eyes as she heard the cries and whispered, “Democracy is dead.”
The anger filtering through the fields among America’s waves of grain,
And the hope of a better community slowly began to drain.
Flags were waved and tossed as they climbed the walls like imps from hell,
With murder on the lips of men, the crack grew longer on the Liberty Bell!
The lies and infection of the damned insurrection
Caused politicians to stop and stare
As our foreign allies and enemies laughed and glared.
The broken windows, offices wrecked, senators in crisis as they kneel
but in the spirit of fighting for freedom, democracy they did not steal.
This land is soaked with more than blood;
The tears and sweat of slaves and free caused a flood.
Resiliency, prayer, hope, and faith will never die.
Strength will come day after day; peace will not pass us by.
Oh America! Oh America! God will shed His grace on thee
and we will repair the brokenness to create great unity!
