Ah, Lady Liberty

greeting all on

Eastern Shore                        promising:        life

liberty

happiness

once only for                                             male, white landowners.

She                        lifts                        a lamp,

forgetting                         the             Aborigines,

some                        decimated,            as vermin;

Her eyes,                      blinded,                 by             rockets

red glare:

greed

prejudices

held,                        one kind or

another            by all:

hate

intolerance,

as some             strive                         to do                         “the right thing”

knowing             when                         differences

may lead to:                           assault

soul murder, or

death

Yes,                        shine                                                 your lamp,

from sea to sea

for we

are                        the World –

(once a year!),

yet

the Witching Hour                        brings                           decent

unhappiness

fear

hate,

as we                                                pledge                                    our hearts

to a piece of cloth                                    crossed / double crossed

since

inception.

We                                                know                                                 that

only Christians will see                                                Paradise;

So, with Bible in                                                                                 hand

and sword                                                                                            at ready

we                                                train                                               our little

deceivers well.

As, Little Islands of                                                                       America

fester                   across   the   globe

we            righteously                                    enter                        Washington’s

Cathedral

Wearing                                    Tago’s face

buying                                    pseudo peace,

With a paid weekend                                                                             and

birthing,             the next day,

Universal Soldiers                                                                                of Hypocrisy.
