Thoughts on America Today


                    


                  The American Armada


Blazing across navel skies, the fleets go forth


vessels of a long-destroyed foreign threat


Beating into a melodramatic liberty


Threatened by a seized nation


             Standing on one leg,


             Scratching its capped head.


 


Ever on guard, ever faithful fool,


            gun in hand, gum in mouth


 


Defending the present revolution,  up


holding the past, speaking out against


The atrocious practices of an uncivilized


War, sponsored by the enemies


off Freedom's Shores, the master minds


behind the barbaric subjection


of our forefathers


the upholding of our favorite


       Movie Star


shining forth in all her glory


for the preservation of


Our grand and glorious Republic


 


The eternal beauty of a sacred lie.

Our nation is still standing strong and many people coming into it from other countries find that out. We shall always stand and fight for our rights and God has great hope for America. God Bless You All and Peace come too.

You really love America, huh?
Reviewed by Reginald Birch (Reader)
A nation’s honesty to its own self, liberty for free speech, ability to listen to the other point of view, end ‘we know what is best for you’ mentality, these are a few of the qualities that makes a grand nation great.

A few thoughts for any nation, including my own.

Propaganda is the previous reviewer, if you or he don't like the country for what it is or isnt, LEAVE...Ed
