While she burns they watch ............poetry

My country tis of thee
indivisible and beyond the open mind
this love for country
and the patriot grows ever blind

just what will he sacrifice to her bosom
but his all and more
just where will it end at the careening towards
an open door

for all her faults he loves her still
he always will no doubt
even amidst the ever crying masses
oh how loud they shall shout

and yet he asks you now just what have
you sacrificed
what can you do more
can you be enticed

Is it all but the naïve voices of youth or those
grown old without learning
that leave a nation on the edge of decline
or is she already burning

Thank you for your reminder that we cannot stand and watch our country go down. WE have a voice and is time to use it. Watch evil tremble as the masses unite. WE shall not go quietly in the night. whonu
