A Few Words in Defense of Our Country



A Few Words in Defense of Our Country:

The end of an empire
Is messy at best

And this empire's ending
Like all the rest

Like the Spanish Armada
Adrift on the sea

We're adrift in the land of the brave
And the home of the free

--- Randy Newman

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."


-- Cecil Day-Lewis from Where Are The War Poets?
