Democracy is Fading Fast

With fear for our democracy
The frail experiment that it was
That boasted Freedom with one hand
And enslaved with the other
Oh democracy
You beautiful lie
That oppressed hearts
Have been trying to make true
Pulling at
the moral arch of the universe
With all the strength of hope
Oh democracy
You ghost
You phantom
You pipe dream
You hallucination
The truth of you
Just an apparition
In men’s hands
Fly your flags at half-staff today
You patriots
Lighting fun sized bombs
In the streets
To celebrate
Liberty
Fly your flags at half-staff
The democracy
You barbecue ribs for
Is on her last breath

And shall we now believe
That Lincoln's honored dead
Have died in vain?
That Government
Of, by and for
The People
Shall soon perish
From the Earth?

Forbid it, Almighty God !

Well said. This is a very sadly ironic Fourth of July indeed.
