Public Discord and Dismay

A rose reigned on high,

Fired! Like cannon shot.

Suddenly, so much insanity,

Brought down by shifting storms of public discourse.

A true tidal wave of animosity.

Dawn finds Rose is plucked.

Lost integrity; a legacy swept away,

Derision cast and snarling sneers

Decades of unease held inside

Resentment carried for years

Morality rains, churning up rocky ground.

Freezing drops of hypocrisy stings.

Beating steel rain on famous faces.

Power fails absolutely,

Seasonal changes bring equality to workplace arrangements

A Paradigm shift unleashed.

Public outrage can turn to sunshine

Dawn may break to safety

A country in need of steady breezes.
