What Flag for This America?: a Poem
Like a bunch of spoiled, capricious kids
raising their voices as in out of tune song
each asking for respect of their own needs
they make their demands overly strong.
On this tag-of-war they are thriving
with dark passion resembling sheer hate
looking more like drifting than arriving
with a sound prediction of this country's fate.
Democracy is turning into a farce
merciless dictating becoming a norm
like everyone has fallen down from Mars
perpetuating this crazy political storm.
No one seems to listen to a reason
each sticking to their affiliation
while there is no bigger form of treason
than weakening the spirit of the nation.
What flag should represent this great land
and should it have red stars mixed with blue
for if those stars spell unity, it's of a new brand
not anymore one that's proud and true.
