In Philadelphia I sense the spirit
of the Founder, his iconic image
everywhere, his ghost haunting
the back streets and alleyways
of this City of Brotherly Love –

always in awe of his foresight,
his vision, of the principles
which built this great nation:

and I am baffled –
we have fallen so short:
how the f— did we get it so wrong,
drive so far off track, so wrong?
