13-15

XIII

Desolated by this
Capitalism
He fears
The American legal system
And is at last
Tainted by
Virtually everything
The deputy sheriff
And influential citizens
Denounce and condemn.

In this excessive zeal for
Resentment
The deeds of republicans
Warrant his
Guillotine



XIV

I discovered
The discharged
Industrial neglect
Took place
On our boasted Christian county.

Accompanied by violence
A state had the right
To destroy
Homeless widows and orphans
By this method of accretion.


XV

Advancing civilization
Was uncertain where to turn.

The ghost of
Her "Manifest Destiny"

Wore thin
Over this calamity.
