I Am Not Irish


Called me whatever!
Ice cream,
crap,
CRAPE, or
shit of a shit.


But,

I am not Irish!
And I give a damn about ancestry.

Only the sun
Can
Evaporate me,
Melt me, and
Mold me!
And that is my ancestry.

poet Katharine Lee Bates

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