heartbeats fading in the western world

the american empire is finally falling

brought down by its own insufferably

vain and stupid citizenry

it was bound to happen eventually

there never was any golden age of principled

compromise for the good of all

every swing of the pendulum

delivered an agenda good enough

to raise the ire of its opponents

until compromises were nothing more

than weak treaties to allow foes to regroup

democracy never quite took hold here

and now america takes its place in the waste of history
