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

    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

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
