The Lovely America

America,

A country that's known for its supposed greatness

America,

A country that's known for its presumed freedom

America,

A country that's known for its "many oppurunities for all"

All of these things make our America look like a heaven on earth

But the gifts of greatness, freedom, and unlimited oppurunities come with terms and conditions...

If you do not make enough money, you are not eligible

If you are not the right color, you do not qualify

If you wear a hijab instead of a hat, you are unworthy

If you love the wrong gender, you are not suited

It's amazing how all of these gifts are offered toAmericans but not for all Americans

What a lovely country. America.

My country
