Psalm of the Patriot

Though the ghost of their failures
Now well up around us
Now is no time to lose your nerve

And though the shouting and wailing
Now threaten to drown us
As the country, she cries, in great pain and great hurt

Oh, once proud Raptor, what’s there to say?
Your vision’s grown cloudy,
Your Talons worn dull

But in the great eagle, her heart still beats proudly
And the spirit of freedom
Will never be culled

~ T.R. Atkins
