Where is the pioneer?
Where the trail blazer?
Deep in the earth, you say?
Buried forever?
Once, I'd defy you,
Call you a cynic,
Denounce and deny
The truth that you utter.

But now with my growing wisdom
Insight and mysticism,
Distance has lent to me
A clearer perspective.
We are a pampered race,
Complacently satisfied;
Unfortunate heirs to a place
Richly provised.

Thus it has been so far,
In the abundance of youth.
Now that the girth is tightened
We face danger in truth.
Hunger, while the wheat waves,
War, and its devastation,
Fear not; our Eagle will claim
The pioneer at his resurrection.
