In Decline! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

to not believe
that America is in decline
is a stronger opiate
than i am familiar with!

but America is not a country,
not a political process,
not Wall Street, not big oil!

America lives within
the hearts of the working people.
and we are stronger
than you think!

we have arisen from the ashes
and we demand hope!
