God Bless America

I have been to countries

Where I have seen soldiers

Walking around

With guns on their shoulders

Or places where people

Looking for favors

Snitch on their family,

Friend or their neighbors

Some people with little

Constitutional protection

Have seen their enemies

Overturn an election

There are lands where a woman

Is killed in disgrace

For going to school

Or not covering her face

On returning home

From my treks through the world

I’ve thrilled at the sight of our flag unfurled

My heart was warmed and filled with cheer

Knowing that it couldn’t happen here.

Or could it?!!
