Problematic and Beautiful

America, land of the free

Home of liberty, I would disagree

Full of freedom? We barely make the top twenty

We ask for diversity they say, "We've got plenty."

 

We fight for what's right,

For all who are white

We overfund the military,

But fail the library

 

We brag about our education,

But fail in actualization

The citizens try their best,

Freedom and equality obsessed

 

We see the flaws,

And try to fight for a cause

When we object,

We strive to protect

This poem is about: 
My country
Our world
