next; the South

The American South

That region known in American history

as the South

goes to a serious meditation,

a more serious meditation today.

The Confederate flag flashes into the picture.

The recent events have added fire to

the smoldering  pride of the region.

And the calls for unification are being ignored.

The rest of the Union should take serious note

that Abe Lincoln,

greatest of the great Americans,

did not completely unify the country.

He failed to put out the Southern fire.

One keeps wondering why the Washington Capitol,

erstwhile the impregnable fortress of Democracy,

was breached by the same people

whose blood was shed to protect it.

Hell, NO, is heard,

we won’t go!
