Dear Bhoilseabhach

If only I had the power to confer
on you and yours all power
to free America
from its greed
and the paltry middle class

to free America
from piggish bourgeoisie

to free America
from its war mongering

to make America
land of the free
and home of the brave

to make America
more spirited and generous
beautiful happy and heroic

dearest Boilseabhach!

There Won't Be an America

Children, I yearn forgiveness
for my supposition
i thought no harm in neglect
or abused position

Children, there won't be a home
there won't be an america to escape to
i thought no harm in sleeping in the rain
or letting old dogs die so the new would bite

children
there won't be an america to escape to
in all the world, they want for peace
america was the homestead

children
there won't be an america to escape to
there will only be one world to escape from
one america to run from
one big godless form

children

I Write America (Revision)

I write America
in order to form a perfect union
assuming there is a union at all
and not just some Texas mama's boy
standing off to the side
watching it fall
for the strong
for the weak
and for those who refuse to speak
I hurt on their behalf
and for them
I write America.

I write America
the beautiful
conquered from sea to shining sea
known now only for the names
who 'discovered' it
Christopher Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci
who failed to realize
there were already people here
I always wondered
how you could discover something
that's already been discovered
for credit where credit is due
I write America.

I would continue to write America
but America responds only to threats
so instead I just watch America
I watch slices of the American Pie
devoured left and right
but all across the board
the skin tone in invariably white
I am the property of a nation
built on the countries it has conquered
and a heritage it will never own
until the day the American dream includes me
I just watch America.

Good bye, Traditional Marriage

America has one more thorn on her side.
It’s a real piercing for America.
To do away with traditional Marriage of a man and woman,
United as one,
The gay activist won.
It’s more pain for America to follow.
It’s an arrow
In America’s side,
It will be interesting to see who will be there to stand beside her.
And guide her,
Will America be guided by light or darkness?
What will happen to America’s consciousness?
America once guided by Lightness.
Taken over by a dark powerful force that pushes the stern into total blackness,
Pray that the enemy doesn’t see America’s weakness.
Seek the Lord with all of your heart.
Knowing that the Lord set us apart,
From the evilness of this world,
This is our true existence.
