State of the Nation

State of the Nation

Faith is growing cynical. Grace is wearing out.
Happiness is in the doldrums. Patience wears a pout.
Our country that connoted  fairness and liberty
now holds us in its fist. We are anything but free.
Its silver saber tarnished, we’re falling to its blade.
So much for all those plans our founding fathers made.


Prompt words for the day are cynical, grace, connote and silver. First image from Unsplash used with permission.

          That’s actually a good policy. I don’t usually drink alone, but every once in a whileI do. I just don’t ever think about having a drink unless its to celebrate with a friend. When I’m depressed I guess I eat, I don’t drink.
