America

Ah, another Fourth is gone – the ritual burning of dead animals, flags made in China waved by just folks celebrating our glorious victories over the world’s peasant armies, speeches by people convinced that if the Founders were alive today they sit at their table in the cafeteria and not yours, all experienced through an alcoholic fog….

The spectacle always puts me in mind of Whitman’s “America.”

Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich/Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love…

Then again, maybe not.
