Now Independent - Poem by James McLain

Beings and being shorted thus
by they,
turning now soon on each other
and civil each party it now, 'pays
being never having been thus before
before now a Union our State
threatened but not
by your own
sinking ships like the sun
going down
credit is but one long hemp noose
coming undone
betting on frailer, ' instead of success
money abused and miscued
pension funds for they whom worked hard
knowing the bubble, had long burst and
they allowing it still to be drained all away
yes you will
you can do more
you can do what should have been done
public opinion made just in the eyes the public made
to each and to each
all as one
their understanding of playing it close to the vest
waking up next too the rose
with that fresh scent of each new day.
But your aids have told you all of this, that you know.
So i go.
