The Tares and the Tears (Poem)

There is a deep sympathy for the falling of the American dream, and many feel it.

The Tares and the Tears


I floated across a vast land of golden wheat,
With occasional tares,
The wheat over time became thin and incomplete,
For we were caught in snares;

In centuries past, the whole world to us had turned,
And we supplied their wants,
But something got in the fields of wheat and had burned,
Giving us naught but haunts;

Alas, cry for the spoils of love which have fled!
And left us a bitter taste,
So, rue the day that the socialists were not bled,
And we never did haste!
