Weep

Writing from the deep sadness that invaded the hearts of many of us after November 4, Doug Groothius wrote the following poem:

Weep for America,
you who have tears
left for truth.

Weep for the continued
and soon to be intensified
slaughter of the innocents.

Weep for the supernatural stupefaction
that has overtaken us.

Weep that character
no longer counts,
that image is everything.

Weep that America has forgotten her
birthright.

Weep.
