america the beautiful

america the beautiful

not so beautiful to me

murder, greed, injustice after injustice is all I see

the founders of this “great” nation

nothing more than pirates

taking whatever they wanted by means of violence

thieves of land, lives, and souls

leaving Native americans, Africans and countless others with wounds untold

Human lives like livestock

brought and sold

Human lives … the equivalent of garbage

 tossed to and fro

current leaders authorize rape, pillage, and plunder

what never was a “great” nation destined to be torn asunder

america the beautiful

not so beautiful to me

I dedicate this writing to the Melanated peoples of the world who have been consistently targeted and terrorized by those in power
