Heavy World, Pt 2

The world feels heavy tonight,
the weight of America especially.

With massive opinions near the center and the edges, America feels heavy tonight.

Heavy enough that such weight threatens to break America in two.

The broken body of America, soon to be consumed by brutish capitalistic crows and crafty billionaire scavengers while the poor and oppressed are ground like wheat, and left as chaff blowing in the wind.

In this day and hour, the gods of political power walk Wall Street and incite both sides to despise wise words and advice.

Toils take their toll on the young and old, and no time is left for those who lie open faced toward the night sky. 

When will all things be made right? 

Because the world feels so heavy tonight.
