Heartland

Torn up roads.

Set a mountain on fire

Poisoned fields and waters.

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray because

my soul weeps.

Mislead America’s *heart land.

My heart. My heart.

Sits on the side of a road

Sign in hand.

Our better angels 

cry

Listen.

Patri-Rot homegrown.

You gave them something to entertain them.

Distracted us all

From the destruction

Of our own.
