America is Ready

You need to spend some time getting to know how the layout tools work for your pieces. Best way is to study the page and try out a few edits before you hit the publish button.

America has a good few social diseases around hypocrisy. Hardly an idyll of democratic rights when some citizens are born more equal than others and has a police force that likes to keep it that way.

I really don’t know why my poems here decide their own word format!
The words never stay put in the lines that I arrange them in!

March with Me
dusk arising said:

Do not destroy the symbols of your oppression - the slavers statues etc - stand all the prouder that the world sees the oppression you have, and continue to overcome.
Don\'t destroy the symbols of proof which hang heavily around the shoulders of others conscience.

With you.

Our Country Tis Of Thee

I like some of the words you made up here:

Those who are otherized, marginalized, victimized,

trivialized theologized, fictionalized,

disfranchised,criminalized, penalized, capitalized

and propagandized

I may steal a couple of them!

When I was about 13, I imagined composing a great epic poem cataloging all the wrongs and exploitations and deprivations committed by humankind on fellow humans, the flora and fauna of the earth, and on Nature herself, and inspiring humanity to open its eyes atone for it all! It was about 1967. I never did complete my imagined epic, but you\'ve come close to what I had envisioned, at least for the USA. Bravo!

I love this as I was reading and thinking of the faulse shepherds filling souls with slop. But hey I lived it about the fake news too! The change has to come within .

I thought you did the line thing on purpose. If you look closely it looks like a figure eight. The symbol for unity. Well written in any case.

MLHnow said:

Me too! I have written way too many poems for peace and justice. I also write too many political poems lately! MLH
P.S I cannot figure out why all my lines go astray when poem gets published?

I love the rhyme scheme and word choice. I hope in the future this poem will no longer apply

Wow! I was just about to say that this poem should be written on placards or something (although it is quite long, but you get the picture)

The following lines are brilliant;

\" All the while loading us up to be electorally ill-advised for the basis of these legislated lies\"

\"Packing the pistol
As a bolt-action reaction to their gainful inaction or be prepared to hear\"

You are a great writer and I wholeheartedly agree with your views. I\'m from England....Old England where thankfully gun laws are more strict.

Take care - Syd
