I never thought I'll live long enough

to witness the end of the United States of America

or more accurately

how quickly it has all come to pass

all empires fall and now is our time

our world's purpose served

and the last terror here as we wind our way

through this ravening new era

and yet the upcoming empire's sad boasts

empty as a window pane on a wrecked shack

I take my leave from this square of street vendors

and the pocket terrorists every 25 feet from

each other and the Oblivious who would rather not

face or hear the shot that gets them
