Lest We Forget To Offer Thanks, 3

After this great swerve to fix society

and write better American history,

I hear Dvorak's New World Symphony---

as diverse instruments make harmony,

either in major or a minor key.



Author's Notes/Comments: 

When I first heard the great symphony, in January or February of 1980, I did not expect I would every think of it as a celebration of the liberation of this nation from the authoritarianism of a deal-making real estate speculator.
