Treasure Island

Olivia Taylor

(August 29,1994 / Mercy Hospital)

America


America the beautiful,
America the great,
America suits us all,
America I cannot hate

America we've come so far,
America the free,
If we wish upon a star,
Then that wish shall be

    Olivia, I love your poem very much. And to the lady who made the comments about us shooting our gun, that's what makes America great. We can do whatever the hell we want here and I love it! ! ! ! ! ! USA! USA! USA! (Report) Reply

    How ironic, or was that clever sarcasm, to use a catch phrase from Walt Disney corporation in a poem which so utterly drips of dry and dull praise for the worlds most corporate controlled country. (Report) Reply
