Amber Waves

O beautiful amber waves, Majestic Mountains, Spacious Skies,

Your meaning dies,

Where has your brotherhood gone…?

Each foot that has squashed,

Each wild place lost,

No longer proud of country and law.

The strife once born

Thy glitter worn

Dull with time and fatigue.

Our capitalist ways

Our selfish days

How strange our times will be.

Lost are the days

When words did praise

The liberty for which we fought.

Now come the time

When we recognize the crime

Perpetrated against patriot dream

Where are the nobler men

Where have they been

As America’s poor bleed.
