Lady Liberty wails. Happy, I hope, heartlessly destroying mortor built from the blood & sweat of backs of immigrants & slaves. My America is muddied and stained like the riverbeds of the mighty Mississippi. Her tears are endless, flowing. Happy, I hope. Dollar signs have become the new happy, yet ones who bathe in silver and gold do not know their own soul. They've grown cold as the dead. My America has bled itself dry. She screams in terror waking Mother Nature in glorious fury for the selfishness of mankind. America, my birth mother, have faith in those of us who are not deaf, dumb and blind. Be happy, be happy in the mornings.
