Ezekiel Igbodo

(1980 / Lagos in Nigeria)

Greatest of the Great


Great, America Great
The god of all nations
Lord of all states
Voice of the voiceless

Strength of the weak
Eyes of the blind
You are the lion claws of the earth
The un-slumbering eagle eyes ever awake

Your fang, a devastating missile to injustice
Great America, great
Lead America, lead on
Abolisher of slave trade

Installer of rights
Enforcer of justice
Light to the dark world
Terror to the terrorist

Spine of the human rights
Pursuer of justice for humanity
Slaver freer
The land of freedom for all

Blanket of the naked
Hope of the hopeless
With you, opportunity is not a waste
In you talent is celestially optimized

Great America, great
Long live great fathers that begot great leaders
With you, color is fashion
Content is valued

With you gender is style
Age is number
Religion is choice
Freedom is full

My eyes hope to see you someday
My foot itches for you
Though terrors many are in the world
But with you all hope is not lost

Great America
Keeper of peace
Great America
My gentle giant

Great America, o my greatest hero
The fairer morale of the earth
Great America, hope of the unborn generation
Live on and lead on
Great America, the greatest of the great.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
