Amber Waves Of Grain

Be Better

By Earl W. PearlPublished 27 days ago 1 min read

How beautiful these spacious skies

In spite of all we’ve done

From purple mountains, Nature cries

Where creatures used to run

America is losing ground

Too shackled by our fears

What greener grass is ever found

If watered by our tears

We’ve yielded much to lunatics

The selfish and insane

Dividing through our politics

Our amber waves of grain

We’ve lost the sense of brotherhood

Between both you and me

Now mischief reigns instead of good

From sea to shining sea

So God above, be patient still

Please shed Your grace on man

We’ve swallowed now this bitter pill

We need a better plan
