From Her Bosom

America, respectfully I must dissent.
My loyalty is not for rent.

We sing to different anthems, America.
Though “patriots” from north to south
carol in a star-spangled swoon.
I feel no less your child,
with hand to heart, respectfully
tapping to the bouncing beat of Louis Armstrong tunes.

It’s not you, America, it’s them;
the ones that drag you.
It’s the trickle-down of corporate fallout.
It’s the bloody puppet on your filthy pulpit
refusing to yield the floor.
It’s Benjamin Franklin action figures.

It’s the lofty ambition that dismantled Rome
that poisons my American, dystopian home.
