(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Destitution

We can not jeopardize our gains.
However...
We can sure maximize our losses.
And at any cost!
What we lose will be an honorable sacrifice...
For all of the hollow victories claimed!
Inspite of our appearances of destitution.
And that is a worthwhile cause to pride,
With a wholesome delivery....
Our future generations will come to respect,
As justifiable!
For the rest of their miserable lives.
And I might add,
We hold these truths to be self evident.
