Land of the Free

Thu, 02/23/2017 - 11:56 -- oault

We say the land of the free

And yet we have a scandal about our President’s

Pee.

This doesn’t seem to be very fair to

Me.

 

Our Fathers fought for our rights

Religion.

Speech.

Arms.

It no longer seems very bright

That our government uses its

Might to stop their

Fight

 

We are the children of Immigrants.

Our families traveled the seas

To give a better life to you and me.

Why then

Do we prevent others from doing the same?

To me

It doesn’t seem very sane.

 

America is Great

We are the Great Experiment of

The World.

We are the Nation of Nations.

This is a Notion

That we need to remember.

 

One day

We will truly be the land of the Free.

But that fight,

That Battle

That War,

Is up to you and me.

 

This poem is about: 
My country
