I Am The American Eagle


I am the American Eagle

with a broken right Republican wing,

and a broken left Democrat wing,

its "We the people" body tattered and torn.

It needs pledges of help

to its God Bless America body,

for the Eagle spirit to heal.


Its 10% White Collar head

has lost control of its 90%

Blue Collar welfare soul.

For the American Eagle

to become strong,

we must quit

outsourcing its welfare

and unite with its talons

saying NUTS

Never Under Tyranny Surrender

the American Eagle spirit

that unites this nation.


That America is not 10%

but 100%,

where elected officials

need to be 100%

not 10%.

That we do not need

economic morticians

but 100%

American eagle POLITICIANS,

who are not bickering




but 100%



"I pledge allegiance

to the flag of

the United States of America,

and to the republic

for which it stands,

one nation under God,

indivisible, with liberty

and justice for all."


Feel these words reach deep inside America,

It is not a pledge to Demigod

Republicans and Democrats,

Nor is it to Wall St or Private Equity.

It diversity is not just

Conservative, Progressive, Liberal

Or Moderate or Independent,

Rich, poor,

It is even homeless.


Swiss bank accounts,

Overseas tax havens,

It is about investing in America

That we now need 100% pledges

For the American Eagle NUTS talons,

Never Under Tyranny Surrender

Our American 100% heritage

 to the future of our children.

So the eaglets can fly

with both wings.

Absolutely excellent! ~~ DIana P.S. - There is a YouTube presentation of Red Skelton reciting the Pledge of Allegiance with reverences similar to those you have placed in your poem here. I think you would enjoy seeing that. Thank you for this.
