God Bless Not Only America


(To enjoy the song for this poem, please see the poet's profile for the website.)


God bless the hungry, in Columbia or in Cambodia, in Europe or in Ethiopia.
God bless all farmers, growing potatoes or tomatoes, bananas or papayas.
God bless all bears, pandas in China, polar bears in Canada, or cola bears in Australia.
God bless the codes and the buttons of nuclear weapons, in Arizona or in Siberia.

God bless all children, drinking dirty water or Coca-Cola.
God bless the dreams, both in Bollywood's or Hollywood's cinema.
God bless all Gods or their wise friends, Laozi or Confucius, Muhammad or Buddha.
Oh, my God, oh, our God, could you please bless all of us, not only America?

    This is a good piece, and worthy of praise. I would like to see this fleshed out more as I think it has the potential to be the foundation of a ballad. Nicely done, or begun as you decide. (Report) Reply

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
