Ode to the USA

by - December 15, 2015

The new continent.
Land of the free and home of the brave.
You promised Liberty, Democracy, Equality.
Never did you mention Capitalism and Despotism.
Where are all the heroes taking from the rich and giving to the poor?

Land of the free and home of the brave.
The country of mountains, rivers and seas,
Golden corn and beautiful cities,
Coastlines and desertroads.
Pollution, grievances, overpopulation,
Impoverishment and debts,
Extinction and wrongness,
Battles, wars and deaths.

Justice for all and good health to you!
No justice was done, the people get sicker.
Change is on its way!
It better gets here soon.

In the land of the free and the home of the brave
No one’s quite equal but we’re all the same.
If this is the country of honey and milk
And endless possibilities,
The stuff that dreams are made of,
Oh dear, we are lost and not to be found.

But today’s your day, let’s celebrate
The land of the free and the home of the slaves.
Cheers to you, USA.
