Big Liberty


Oh, Big Liberty, copper giantess,
You French addition to this melting pot,
Are you proud of what this diverse nation
Has willingly and foolishly become?

The most powerful country in the world
With freedoms barely dreamt of by many
Stands as an example for most nations
That is why you hold your torch to the skies.

Now filled with semi-illiterate fools
Who idolize Hollywood beauty queens
Tanned bimbos in exiguous raiment
And they wonder wonder why divorce rates are so high

Defiled by laziness and apathy
The economy is an ailing bird
Our culture's art reflects the tragedy
That is our skill with deep comprehension

Yet still you stand, with torch held high
As if this has pierced through your green skin
You have to look hard to find anyone
Who share your steadfast patriotism

I truly hope I did not confuse you
When I spoke of 'exiguous raiment'

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
