A Lamentation for Philadelphia
A city of gold let these works sweep it over with grime, grit, and dust.
A city once streamed with light and ambition,
Soon became land for the sons of perdition.
A city founded on free-flowing dreams.
Obedient to the Source of it's glory,
Humble yet progressive,
Blazing with authority in once a great nation,
Now a city humbled to dust.
Pride only remains in the hearts of the vain.
Though the fight can't be stifled,
Our souls for this city,
A partnership of force, the contents of it's success,
That left the air bitter with a forfeited honor.
Death is the fruit of our passive transgression,
And life which once fueled an empire of freedom,
Suffocates on the exhale of time and is never spared a chance of revival.
