How Will the Republic Fall?


By Dan Blum

How will the republic fall?
A raging mob that storms the wall?
Waving Uzi and grenade?
Ransacking through some hallowed hall?

Because we chose of our free will
A false Messiah to fulfill
A vain and haughty dream
Proclaim our greatness on live-stream,
Lead us through a heavenly door,
And poof our nation is no more.

For all we hold most dear, that seems
So permanent, so set
Is in truth as delicate

As a glassy crust of ice
That forms upon an April night
And melts off in the morning light
