Reflections

Wed, 04/26/2017 - 19:01 -- Mcs836

Falling
Spiraling
And never to see the end
Of the monotony

Sirens
Alarms
Ringing out lamentations
Of the ever-oppressed

Stars
Stripes
Flecked with innocent blood
Shredded by monarchical claws

Glistening
Flashing
Reflections of fireworks
Are not of wonder, but of fear

Because the rocket's red glare
Is coming for us

This poem is about: 
My country
