Soul of this Country

Soul of this Country

1376258635385There is an ache
in the soul of
this country
it has been there
for
quite some time
wider it spans
than the Grand Canyon
reaching deep into the earth

it grows with
each passing day
turmoil
energy roiling
boiling

becoming a life of its own

swishing
coughing
sputtering

the sickness spreads
of discontent
feelings of despair
twisting in its belly

no not butterflies

but boulders being tossed about
is there a cure
on the horizon
or will it continue unchecked
and in the end
be fatal
