A Year of Poems – Day 61

Let fly the banners from the colonnade
Put up the barriers for the big parade
Today is the day for our nation
The day we take up our station.
We repeat each word
As the jackhammers drum
Rallying the troops with a troubling thrum
We don’t have the time to pause for a question
Are we building up or tearing down?’
Only time will tell.
