Torture Nation

Patrick Fiore

…and history noted of this time,
a nation lost its soul and mind.
It is recorded for all to see,
freedom sought has ended with thee.
The dream is gone, a nightmare instead,
washed with oil and unrecorded dead.
The torch extinguished as darkness reigns,
a torture nation documented in shame,
our hearts’ permanent stain.
