The Soft Tune of the Bells

Sitting in my room on this chilly autumn afternoon, I can hear the bells clanging faintly to the tune of 'My Country Tis of Thee.' Perhaps it is from the clock tower? That would be appropriate, for the nation and time to be so coupled. Here I sit, with time against me, formulating a hairbrained scheme to preserve what in the public sphere is good and true and right. 'My Country Tis of Thee' plays accompaniment to my madness--The past echoes in thoughts of the future. Time links it all. Somehow, this fits.
