Our Lady of the Loyalists

Liberty has fallen

kicked in her side

by the bipedal parasites

the injuriousness

hypocrisy’s insufferable cries

of cowardice

and rampant divisiveness

spreading its seeds

as wildfires across the forested interior.

Armies of men

to strongarm

our town halls

and peaceable assemblies

an expectant sight in a foreign nation

but not here;

not in our home.

We’ve stood for our foreign brothers

at the beck and call

staving off genocide and oppression

so stand and deliver

when the machines of propaganda

rail against us

if we won’t raise our voices now

nobody will raise theirs tomorrow.
