Pardon the screaming capital letters, but really. [List of expletives deleted.]
Here we slump in America, languishing under the thumb of bullies and hypocrites. Whitman's poem is breaking my heart.
Centre of equal daughters, equal sons,
All, all alike endear’d, grown, ungrown, young or old,
Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich,
Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love,
A grand, sane, towering, seated Mother,
Chair’d in the adamant of Time.
