Question

Modern man has gone astray

Enraged with want of care

Land's defiled to pave thier way

Pollution fills the air

Quagmire all around appears

The change is so abrupt

Downward fall the angels' tears

Amidst a land corrupt

Now in purest white is cloaked

The place of our dismay

Then we see the faithful folk

Wipe wickedness away

Is this just one lone event

For isolated sin?

I doubt, and fear that we'll be sent

Time and time again

More importantly, wanted to know if you (plasmid) saw James8421 answer?

auto industry bailout?

Yeah, saw it and all up to palmerc7's. The auto bailout answer is wandering down one of the paths that I intended for the answer, but hasn't wrapped up the entire riddle in a nice little package yet. And the answers are really not too far off.

not sure if "path I intended" means the correct or wrong path, but if correct, is it Recession or Depression?

Neither of those. Unlike some of my riddles the clues here are more subtle and a little harder to identify as being clues, so I'm afraid all I can really say is that the answer I had in mind would be a better fit to the whole riddle.

but it was the "auto" part of the auto bailout answer that was correctly interpreting one of the clues

A rewrite that may make things slightly more apparent

Modern man has gone astray

Enraged with want of care

Lots defiled to pave thier way

Pollution fills the air

Downward fall the angels' tears

Amidst a land corrupt

Quagmire all around appears

The change is so abrupt

Now in purest white is swathed

The place of our dismay

Then the people of the cloth

Wipe wickedness away

Is this just one lone event

For isolated sin?

I doubt, and fear that we'll be sent

While environmentalism and oil dependency and economic downturns and such might fit some of the clues, they leave many unfulfilled. And I wouldn't write a riddle with such an abstract answer. As a rule, my answers are like my head: concrete.

whitewash , coverup

corruption

debt forgiveness (bailout)

Is it a car going thru a carwash? Or just a carwash?

Chicory's whitewash and James' car wash have so much to do with the answer that they could practically be clues in the riddle.
