"Acirema" is "America" spelled backwards.
'Nuff said.

Here in Acirema
I don't have any clout
They tell me I'm a white boy
Like that should leave no doubt

as to place of privilege
My power and prestige
My sense of self-extension
Acute noblesse oblige

Yet if I'm a magnet
For self-fulfillment lies
How come they call me "faggot"
And shoot between my eyes?

A powerful write, I really enjoyed this read. The last two lines are stunning, and made me want to read the poem all over again. Very nice work here!

Bill,

Spot on perfection: we don't know America, do we? A dark current of hatred flows down bloodied streets of discrimination against any who are considered "different": gays, lesbians, disabled, minority...well done. I will be reading more of your words.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I once looked Acirema up and never knew that this place actually existed and you'd be surprised who owns land there...

As for the write~ you penned a thought provoking piece that stirs ones other view on how hurtful people can actually be...and for what? So they themselves can be self-fullfilled?
Enjoyed this and the thoughts that linger...
Love and Peace~
