SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL

A Beautiful Lady

Yes, it is a fact; She was beautiful when she was young.
But today as she has grown old and the flower of youth has wilted.

The glow that attracted the flocks of people no longer exists. Her lovers have all been unfaithful, using her to satisfy their own lusts and then despising her for growing less appealing.

The marks of misuse are evident everywhere and attempts to cover them by artificial means fall short and everyone is aware of her present condition.

Only those who have known her intimately know how far she has fallen and despair at the truth,

“The rose has lost it’s bloom.” They agree reluctantly with the poet’s lament;

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,

Old Time is still a-flying:

And this same flower that smiles to-day

To-morrow will be dying.

Would that this was a view to the future but alas it is a backward glance.

It is true that there those who still clamor for her favor, not for love but what they can yet get from her. A pretense with guile under lying; “I would thy new lover be” stated so beguilingly.

Yes she is on life support and we will laud her demise on this Memorial Day remembering how she has killed her children.
Her name is; America the Beautiful.
