Ode to August 2010 in America

As Zasha waits at the door for a certain human being to return (every day she does this, sweet kitty!), here's what occurred to me after a day's worth of mind-numbing political and historical article-reading, a sort of rhyming snapshot of August 2010 news and events in America:

Aurora pics from ISS
Ground Zero mosque a bitter test
America, don't lose your cool
Obama cites the Golden Rule

Religious persecution rears
its ugly head to show our fears
we've turned a corner, lost the thread
long live the King, the King be dead.
