We didn't fight a War of Independence
So that you lot
Could throw away all our hard-earned gains for you,
                in the way 
       of Liberty
And such like that.
As has been said:

"What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; 
it is  dearness only that gives every thing its value.
Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods;
And it would be strange indeed
If so celestial an article as freedom
Should not be highly rated." 
      (Thomas Paine, The American Crisis)

America is like the Roadrunner.  
                        it has run off
The cliff, and nothing is holding it up 
                  but its failure
To look down, and see
                       the reality 
Of its position.  At which point of awareness -  
Down it goes.
And now -
        true to form -
 Down we go

…as I take over
The helm of my ship of state now, 
With the American eagle at the bow;
                 the New Jerusalem 
Of and in the temporal world.
With a new flag to be unfurled
At the stern; the Good Ship America
Leading the way
Into the New Era
For all of Humanity

Away from the shoals of Despond  
When the people have become too enamored 
Of the means to the end, 
         having lost contact with 
     and focus on 
The end itself.  

Which is reunification with their Creator.

Hold on.
We go
With the tide.

          It is going to be
An amazing ride.
