The Statue of Liberity has fallen.
The cold water suffocated her almost immediately
and Elise Island was rid of her welcoming smile
Gasping for free air, in what is now a wasteland of opporunity
the future president weeps during a eulogy made on
the steps of her pedestal.
An Iranian immigrant smiles as he witnesses the
lies of America drown
Knowing she tripped on the chains only few knew about.
A permanent prisoner the presidential candidate used the speeches to
promote his platform
He cries that he can make America a new world
again as Lady Liberty is swallowed by the darkness at
bottom of the sea
Never to be forgotten
Never to be retrieved.
She shivers beside the shackled bones of black
bodies her own ankles a reflection she should have known was coming
