I Pledge - Gitmo

Rating: 4.8
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America,
and to the Justice for which it stands,

Except for those celled at GITMO

One nation under God, indivisible,
With liberty and justice for all

Except for those celled at GITMO

I have been reading more about Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo) since I made my first comment. In a sense, your poem is timeless.

Very well balanced. Repetition of ' Except for those celled at GITMO'.

I notice that you wrote the poem on February 8 in Thailand. It's only February 7 here in Brazil. You are a day ahead of us!
