Desecration Of History At The National Cathedral

Rating: 5.0

In the case of Jackson
I know little
the seminary professor
transformed by the alchemy of war
to be Lee's eyes.

Of Lee a little more
his sadness at the end
an integrity keeping the nation
from guerilla war,
best General of the big four.
Lincoln offered him the Union command.

A desecration of history
this removal of their National Cathedral presence
I would we leave them there as reminder
of sin and sectionalism and economics desperate power
to override those truths that now are spoken.
