Homeland Insecurity
DZ (It was many and many a year ago / In a kingdom by the sea)

Homeland Insecurity

Amidst the sea of stars doth swim,
A blue-green world so Brave and Free;
'Twas blessed by God for patriotism,
Free-trade and homeland security.

So how unjust for stone to stream,
Still undetected in the gloom,
As from a nightmare or bitter dream,
Approaching Earth with hand of doom,

BANG! - Mountains screaming,
Earth's crust palls,
Explosive and flittering,
Downwards and outwards.

Fumes compress,
Sirens knell,
Distress! Hissing,
Whispering! Wishing...

Adulation gone.
Mankind shut silent...

We need to spend more efforts looking into space. That is where the real threat to freedom and democracy is. (not to mention existence)
