American Insomnia (In Poetic Prose, and not for every reader, and not for discussion. It is a requiem for America)

American Insomnia

(In Poetic Prose, and not for every reader, and not for discussion
It is a requiem for America)

Has it occurred to the reader, how many civilizations has been irretrievable lost—?
Buried by social upheavals with subsequent relapses to savagery?
Because of the loss of morals, law and order, violation of one’s Godly values, or for not having any values!
Rome, Babylon, Troy, Zimbabwe, Russia, China, North Korea, Venezuela, Cambodia, all of the Middle East, would we delve its ruins, they will come up short...
Cities, and then countries.
Soon to be Globalism, and the Antichrist running the show!
We look for rusting mechanisms for dispute, add some doubtful data, dogma, such as no one can decipher, leaving our old friends like Israel, for the Bulls of Bashan—
I assure you this is not probable but certain: the very history of America in the near future, will become more or less legendary—
That is to say: no longer predominant, or widespread…
If indeed it remains on its current course.
Yes, I am a speculative thinker, along different lines of thought.
We are now seeing the use of illimitable, illegitimate power through concentration, by our leaders!
From the outside in, and now from the inside-out, the growth of rapid radicalism is taking place;
Laws being bent to appease, and those so called quasi-friendships overseas, having left America ignorant and broke!
The loss of freedoms due to political correctness, has shattered our Constitution, our law enforcement, our military—
And I can go on and on, but enough is enough…
We the people are being put into an inescapable web, to the point one can’t even ask a personal question that seethes within them.
The more I come to know, the more I am overcome by a sense the unbearable needs to be seize upon with or by patriotism.
Chauvinism, —not narrow-mindedness, but like the Roman soldier who fought with pride for a belief, will soon be dead in our armed forces, and the will to fight for the flag, the one now allowed to be trampled on by dirty heels of whomever, will be nowhere to be found!
It appears to me—over much discussion I’ve listened to—and all too little knowledge within those discussions, the matter of what is and is not good for America, is overlooked—
Even by the FBI!
When God is gone, all that is left to satisfy the hunger of the mongrel, is power, and thus, power takes over!
This all will materialize on investigation.
Even in heaven, there was a war, and laws, and when Lucifer violated them and was judged for treason, there was a consequence.
Like Christ said: ‘Give to Caesar and God, to each what belongs to them.’
But both Caesar and Christ knew the value in maintaining laws, and values, had Rome not, it would not have ruled the world for 400-years.
We have ruled it for less than a hundred, and we’re falling apart.
Now in America I am struck by the tone of our elected, or soon to be elected intellectual elite, on their discussions!
And those who follow.
I doubt greatly if there is anything of value left to be learned.
Today in America the secret is: how is one to know the truth, which is a thing so utterly improbable?
Perhaps unsaid, but surely thought!
You vote for whom you wish, and you get the government in which one must tolerate—
Much as I have grown to admire America, and have fought her wars, and tried to keep her deep rooted values (which are no longer deep-rooted), raised on old thinking and reasoning I suppose, I have become the most incomprehensible and alien being on earth to her now thousand differences, if not indifference!
I seem not to know her, as I once knew her.
Perhaps I’m too simple of a person, in a complex world.
Now as I look at America she gives me a long unreadable glance.
Even though, I will never stop loving her.
On a few other thoughts: if the law isn’t the same for everybody, why should anybody keep it?
Does not a man or woman think: if s/he can break it, so can I?
And of course, this is when the politicians panic, God forbid they think like us!
America wake up, you’re walking in your sleep!
Plato said in so many words: if the law doesn’t stop me from taking another man’s wife next-door, and the spouse is helpless, who’s to stop me?
In war if you do not fight fire with fire you lose ground, you must be worse than the enemy, lest you lay down and die, and who back home will ever be thankful, and care, other than your personal loved ones!
The world at large bites its lip, turns an eye: out of sight, out of mind—they call soldiers ‘baby killers’ and turnabout and have an abortion, I’ve been called that, down that road, upon my return from South Vietnam, in 1971, I don’t remember killing a baby, but I know many who have, having worked as a counselor in Federal and State prisons for a decade.
America, she is blind as a bat, alas, when she hears the truth, she still will not accept it: pride comes before destruction, as the old saying goes.
So whomever is reading this, be on your toes.
