Dr Joseph Luxum

America needs no doctrines, but mercy

It needs compassion, no more smug conceit

It needs refinement in things that made it

America the great exceeding the ages

The forces within that make it crumble

With careless reflections on history’s past

Make no provision for history’s hope…

The columns of freedom begin to falter

The worm beneath them gorged on its spoils

Meant to endure for epochs of time

Now not considered, estranged tomorrow

Much less to prolong the founders’ legacy

With ardor they strived to build a better life

For self and those that would embrace

The values of freedom, mercy and grace

Which made this nation home of the brave
