American Lullaby 2001

Mule-bred defiance exemplifies
our lasting creed . . .

We will not fall!

The possum in his need to move
is destroyed by the movement . . .

We will not fall!

The legacy of Rome declares failure
for those who model her . . .

We will not fall!

Adam never considered the choice
to be that important . . .

We will not fall!

Surging rapidly toward destruction
is the one thing we do well . . .

Oh, the view from such heights!
