We are living It now
So I will observe that History has its own scale.
Its weights are comprised of only
Pure concern for right and wrong
Against a backdrop of commonweal and fraternity.
History cares not about motive
or opinions or bank accounts:
It cares that your neighbor didn’t suffer in any way due to your actions
It concerns Itself with whether the words you spoke were beautiful or ugly
It longs to confess that you walked your talk.
There’s no alternative in History’s measure
Some things really are absolute and
An attempt to justify the damnable will be revealed through the scope of History’s truth.
As we stand now in a moment of time
Where the stakes are extreme
And the consequences are beyond repair should we choose the wrong path,
I hold my breath that reason prevails
And rationale becomes vogue again.
That the tide of ‘most of us’ will cleanse away
The destruction of our nation and the pillaging of its people.
This moment will conclude, then our children will look back
And with the privileged clarity of future generations
Witness the reveal of History’s judgement upon what we do this very hour –
May the verdict return favorably upon each of us.
