Miss Liberty stands proudly

in New York harbor

once a symbol of welcome

to those needing a new life,

now tired, aging, weather-beaten,

inspiration dwindling

as ills infect the people,

loss of jobs, homes,

drugs pervading the land,

lunatic killing sprees,

frequent threats of terror,

a crumbling economy

subtracting hope for the future,

immigrants unwelcome,

until constant fear

poisons existence

and we no longer enjoy

former pleasures.

—Gary Beck
