One Good Friday 144 years ago...

...we lost our greatest President.

"Let the Railsplitter Awake!"
"Let Abraham come back, let his old yeast
rise in green and gold earth of Illinois,
and lift the axe in his city
against the new slave makers
against their slave whips
against the venom of the print houses
against all the bloodsoaked
merchandise they wanna sell."

A. Ginsberg in "Homage to Neruda:"

"Let the Railsplitter Awake!" Maybe he has.
