America the Good

Tue, 03/14/2017 - 19:55 -- Dori

The World is your oyster

But where you reside is your prison

America the great?

I don't disagree

America the terrible?

Sounds the same to me

They claim America is a She

But I would condradict and say it's He

Our customs and systems have man hands

He is filled with disorder and deceit

He is filled with lies and judgment

But He is also filled with beauty

He is filled with power

He is filled with creativity

And He is filled with Love

So is He America the great?

Or America, Land of the free?

Or America,

A Door without a key?

My country
