In the last days
before the ending
he anguished. 
Haunted by a public life,
lived on the wrong side of history,
isolated by privilege,
entrenched in an old-world ethos,
he lacked the perspective to see
the interconnected reality
of the human experience. 
His legacy haunts history
reaching its long arm 
into present day
where a once great
nation remains divided.
