From the Vietnam Draft taking away youth's innocence, to the Mercedes "Terminated for Poetry" ending taking away the rest of the Rip TAPS American Dream.

Lost And Wounded Heartbeat Cadence


The tear RIP, bares the TAPS beat,

To quake alone adrift shadow shivers.

Slivers defined alight shrill definitions,

Within a lost wounded poet wraith cadence.


America, you stole a poet’s soul.

RIPped it apart tattered ‘n torn,

Taking the love of heartfelt verse,

And “Terminate for Poetry” a Vet.


The medicinal cleansing of Free Verse

Being a Reason to fire a Vietnam Veteran

That used napkin poetry for therapy

Being censured in an Alabama Sweet Home.


Right to Work At Will Southern State

That can terminate for Confederate Flags,

Upon private vehicles and even homes,

Flown at any time that are ruled obscene.


“We the Corporation” being a German employer,

“We the People” being an American employee.

Conglomerate Goliath Made in Germany master,

American Selective Service Vietnam War Veteran.


Mercedes Benz censored 24/7, 365 day Poetry

Where writing any sort of Uni-Verse were grounds

To be summarily “Terminated for Poetry” At Will,

To Be forever and more - To Be forevermore,

Lost and Wounded Heartbeat Cadence.


RIP Open the American Dead Poet society wraith cadence,

Hear the poetic depth lyrics sharing Star Spangle Banner.

Hear the TAPS in a broken spirited Vietnam War Veteran,

Where the Draft of a Vietnam War stole youth’s innocence.


While Mercedes “Terminated for Poetry” did devastate

A final tattered worn remnant bearing Fairy Tale America.

That God Bless America is a Mercedes life sentence

Hear yea, Trump statement say, Vietnam veterans are no heroes.


What if, what if one, was instead an American Draft Dodger,

A.S.S. or American Staying Stateside those who became billionaire

Heroes, who are “We the Corporation” Romney Republican Masters

Or those Progressive Clinton A.S.S., who rule with supreme power.


“We the Corporations” that control America, as in 1760,

Whose East India Corporation shackled Democracy’s Liberty ‘n Freedom.

Where “We the people” did not have a Right to Know ingredients

That made up the consumer core of what, as civilians, they consumed.


RIP 1776, hear the TAPS of the Final Master Class Solution,

Where upon a Security need for a Republic “Right to” for Corporations,

America’s working class capitulates control to ALEC in a white flag,

 Hear yea “We the people” body bagpipes

Being “Terminated for Poetry” in a

Lost And Wounded Heartbeat Cadence

You have summarized beautifully what's wrong with extreme patriotism in this country.
