Footprints in the sand?

Historians will one day delve into and pore over the history of the United States of America. They will undoubtedly engage in all manner of pedantry, as is their custom; however, one thing they might agree upon is a single Supreme Court decision. One which may be looked upon as the last footprint we left in the sand as a Republic.

Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission

It will be these moments,
haunting reveries frozen in time.
We will mourn the soul of our land;
bent double under the weight of our pride,
cursing our path, looking backwards all the time;
to the vanishing footprints of the Great Republic.
Covered in the ashes of glory,
only visible to the senescent mind.
