Compromised Authority by Raymond A. Foss
A painful truth is alive in the world
We now speak only with compromised authority
just another voice, no better and no worse.
Violating rights once written in stone,
held up as good news
for the world;
hollow now because of the choices
the slow ebb of our nation’s soul
Becoming our enemy
In the name of war.
