Stephen Jarrell Williams

In A Far Yet Near Land

They come to tear us down

For we have suddenly been outlawed

No longer appropriate to salute and stand for

They enter our sanctuary of graves

Our tombstones tens-of-thousands

That fought and died for them

We cannot stop them from where we are

As they spit and kick

Knocking over our crosses

Our cemetery being bulldozed flat and forgotten

And you ask could this happen

In a far yet near land as here?
