Still Life  (or A Lament for 2016)

 Here at flower fall
  Where the petal lies
   The sun can shine
    and the birds can sing
 But I cannot be happy today

 There where books are bound
  There where dance is held
 And cannot be happy today

 The market road is high and hard
  And there he waits to mark his card
   The thunder cracks, a blade reveals
    A moment in a still life

 Now that reason rests
  grace cannot remain
   boors and cheats
   surround us now
 I cannot be happy today

 The brand new land the mob has won
  Cannot survive the being done
   Fools and liars lead us now
    Our glory is behind us
