America

America, magnificent, noble, graceful, peaceful. 

Where have you gone? Has your country betrayed you? 

Has the younger generation rose up against you?

What have we done with our flag? 

Have we held up the values Francis Scott Key set out for our country

Do we watch our banner wave beautifully in the sky or do we crumple it to the floor? 

Does the average student know the history of our country forwards and backwards? 

Oh wonderful for polluted skies and gmo stacks of grain

For littered mountains travesty, across deserted plains

America, America what happened to graceful and free? 

This poem is about: 
My country
