Flightless Eagle

The Eagle will soar once more!

Flightless Eagle
Susan Witmer Miller

Conversation squelched
Muzzles put on the people —
Another wall built

As walls grow higher
Freedom slowly disappears
We no longer soar

Fear and division —
Clipping America’s wings
The Eagle can’t fly

Walls start to crumble —
Hand outstretched in welcome —
Eagle soars once more
