Much like a zombie,

a person sans vie

prowling around mimicking birds

constantly using idiotic words


Sleep all day, party all night,

constantly cutting short other’s lives

caged, hurt and scared –

am I talking about birds or humans here?


Deaf, dumb, and blind,

listen to their cries

they’re malnourished and hurt,

yet he wishes to put “America first”


though with a limited vocabulary –

“China, druggies, the military!”

a toddler onstage

in the most dangerous play


Constantly using idiotic words

prowling around mimicking birds

a person sans vie,

much like a zombie.

This poem is about: 
My country
