America under my finger nails.

America on our brows
America epidermal, that slips right -out and falls to the ground
America between our toes, as we dig and spit
America, black, white, latino, asian, the landless, and the homeless
America in our blood, stained with foreign oil to lubricate our progress
America that takes from the poor to gives to the rich
America running free in the sewers

The poor are not Americans, they are just poor
A good American always wins
A good American prays to God
To keep him on top no matter what
A good American makes laws for us to obey
In prison there is not a single American, they are just criminals
Freedom is only given to real Americans
God and the dollar sign
Stars and stripes and the holy bible
It's all you need to know.

"If fascism ever comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross." --George Orwell
Nice poem.


Nothing like a sarcastic poem.

Voting, selective service, taxes and the red-blooded complaining come to mind as well. Good write
