God Bless America

Author: Caleb David Duku

God bless the

Land of the free

And the Home of the brave,

The land of the crack addicts

And technological slaves,

The land where democracy is just a word,

And hard work can no longer be seen or heard,

What happened to the pride that we once had,

You can’t tell me we shipped it off with our soldiers to Baghdad,

You can’t tell me the pearl was bombed,

To make a breed of blood sucking morons,

To think that the pressure would make die-monds,

Not die away in a film of tears and regret,

Not die away with the thousands of lives lost,

When twin towers crashed to the ground,

And became stones and moss.

Gone are the days

When broad stripes and bright stars

Made us believe America was ours

The land where all people walk brave and tall,

Whether you’re Christian, Muslim or don’t give a fuck at all,

But then again who said we have to let it go?

I live for the future but I’m bringing back the past,

A paradox of mere stupidity,

I live to bring back the days

When any American could proudly say,

God Bless America!!
