Departure of Sagacity, Robert A Sieczkiewicz

Where have you gone needed Sagacity?
Our walls now tumble, roads in anger heave,
Leaders’ best off’r is their duplicity.
What was the conundrum that made you leave?

Things should not be the way they were before,
Too much was hidden behind closet door.
Need new roads built for searchers to explore.
Restore rugged walls at our freedom’s core.

If here would you so proudly take a knee?
Or wipe your dirty feet on Old Glory?
Is there not so much more to what we see?
What is at fault for all this misery?

In the mirror we all should take a look,
And reevaluate the paths we took.
