Are We Not

Are we all not the most miraculous of failures
the most beautiful tragedy of devastation
as we perch upon our golden hilltops
watching peasant children dying in the streets
our grandmothers decay on decadent sidewalks
Are we not the most half-assed heroic breed
falling silent to our Mother’s precious deeds
no fool or folly in this greatness versus greed
