The American Election

Where are the Giants of Your Past
    
    Oh America!  America!
    You who listen and applaud
    The Man Who Would Be King.
    
    Mais où sont les neiges d'antan?
    Where is the one who sang
    "My Captain, My Captain"?
    Where is the man who freed the slaves?
    Where is the man who told
    that fear itself was all there was?
    And what of he who asked
    what you could do for your Nation?
    And where is the tomb
    where lies your Arthur
    prepared, it’s said
    to fight again for liberty!
    
    Oh, my friends, my friends......
    indeed
    “Qui beauté eut trop plus qu'humaine?
    Mais où sont les neiges d'antan!
    Where are the Giants of your Past?
