Furl that banner, softly, slowly!
Treat it gently—it is holy–
For it droops above the dead.
Touch it not—unfold it never,
Let it droop there, furled forever,
For its people’s hopes are dead!
–Father Abram Joesph Ryan
I’m picturing this over the opening credits of my biopic. Needless to say, there’s a new track going into my regular rotation!
