A question for Lady Liberty

My green lady


Your amber countenance long kissed away by the seas' invisible lips


All the while looking on as your city claimed land hand over fist


During that time I fear, the greed of man chipped away at what you held most dear


What you stood for is abhorred by the dusty hordes that chart the course of this increasingly leaky star-spangled ship


I wonder, are you still a part of it?


My dear lady I ask you this, as I watch you stand alone


Are you still Liberties' monument?, Or have you become its tombstone?

This poem is about: 
My country



Just some feelings I let ferment.

Decided to distill them into this.
