Best Poem of G.R. Gaus

Manifest Destiny Rides Again

We call ourselves Americans;
Have we erased the past?
Forgotten how this land was won?
Can't hear the distant blast?
Mighty cannon, shining gun,
Below; the setting sun.

We call ourselves Americans;
Destiny was our vow,
A legal word to burn and kill,
Ask not, the why or how,
Look back beyond the hill,
Blood for honors, spill.

We call ourselves Americans;
An ancient culture tossed,
Missionary's spread disease,
Entire tribes were lost,
Women, children to their knees,
A warrior's pride, was seized.

We call ourselves ...

Enough

We brought you here, to our fair land,
By ships, we traveled far;
Kidnapped, from your family home,
Deep down, we left a scar.

Worked you hard, for room and board,
Encouraged you to breed;
Called you slaves, and other names,
The whip; we made you bleed.
