I'm American Made Poem by Charles Hancock


Born in a rebellious decade
I'm loud, proud, and unafraid
My bravado; I'm American made

Spent my teens in the era of glam
I'm boastful of my old Uncle Sam
Don't like it? I don't give a damn

Served my country for two score
I'm a seasoned veteran of the Cold War
Liberty! Is what our founders stood for

Now, our overseers are gutting the Bill of Rights
I'm vigilantly keeping them in my sights
For it's my country, not the Third Reich's

    If this is a satire, then it is very clever, if you mean it, then... help! .... (Reich`s is not a word, you cannot
    use English punctuation with a foreign word) . (Report) Reply
