If This Is America…

Walls

Barriers,

fences,

whatever

you want

to call them,

are anathema

to the idea

Of the land

of the free

Dont fence me in

comes to mind

Ask the sheep,

Ask the cattle,

Ask the bird in a cage,

Ask them

how free they are?

How dare you

cage the eagle,

The Eagle that is

the American Ethos

Are we really

Going to become

The home

of the skerred

And the land

of the sheep?

Thats not

the America

To whom

I have

Promises

To keep

that is not

The America

I was born too

That I pledged

Allegiance to

That I served

As a soldier

No

No

If this is America

This is the

New America

Then America

Is dead.
