I can forgive myself for many sins;
I’ve committed about every kind;
But, I never could forgive myself
For not sharing what troubles my mind.
I sit in dismay watching the decay,
Of the greatest government ever formed;
If it goes down in flames, I cannot be held to blame,
As with my words, I have, many times warned.
To simply look the other way,
Is a sin I see happen all of the time;
But, to sit idly by, as our nation dies,
To me, is an unforgivable crime.
So, shake your head once more in dread,
Although by now, I guess you are bored;
I’ll try again to use my pen,
In hope it proves as mighty as the sword.
