And a lone piper,

In uniform and kilted regalia stood

Upon a cement parade ground

In driving rain

The drones wailed a lament

As the melody soared in sonorous derge

Good, nostalgic tidings

Drowned in celestial tears

Eras end amongst promises of better days

Lies abound in hearts drunk with power

Today, years later, tears fall in deluges 

Torrential as on that dignified piper
