It's coming ......... verse

Monument to 911 horse soldier- Google images

Burning air the odor after the lightning storm
drifting in silent breeze
An ominous sign
The electric mists of evening
in the humid July darkness
It's coming
The cold gripping terror of hunger in
Januaries cold
Not to be ignored
It's coming you know
I fear it I await it almost
wishing for it
Yet not in some remote ice covered
mountain range
Nor in fields of poppies
But right here in your homeland
In your town?
Are you ready?
Is the choice the blood of your son
on our own streets
The death of your daughter
a true patriot

Or a plague of apathy so widespread
as never before seen?

Apathy is at an all-time high in our beautiful America. People are rising up in other countries where greed is robbing them of the basic needs to survive. Beautiful verse!
