Soon ( acrostic )

Stand upon the bridge and gaze the landscape
Take note of the budding flowers on this quiet day
Put this vision into the banks of your memory
For you may never see this sight for many a year

Only those who are prepared will remain strong
The death of a country is not a pretty sight
There will be not be much time for mourning
In the air will be the stench of mortality and greed

On that day we will realize the price of complacency
As the freedom our forefathers fought valiantly for
Is taken away like taking candy from a kid
We have none to blame for this but ourselves

None of us can say that the handwriting was not on the wall
As far back as nineteen eighty there were warning signs
Our complacency made us ignore them and fail to act
The shame is ours, get ready everyone, it will be here soon

Absolutely! This is a very chilling reminder of what we've let our country come to, Henry. This is a great write...and one that should be heeded!
Hugs to you...
