Blemished but great

Slaves, wars, and riots

Our history is terrible

We cannot deny that

Allowing innocents to be killed

Allowing houses to be burned

Allowing the world around us to crumble

Stepping in where we're not needed

Not helping those who need us

Everything  is just a political game

Money is the only true power

America has had its moments of weakness

America is also the free world

America... The greatest country in the world

Maybe it has its blemishes

But there's a popular saying

Nobody is perfect

That includes America

Blemishes and all

Yet it is still an amazing country

Free for all

This poem is about: 
My country
