A chapter in the book Odds and Ends

Right of Passage

Image result for american flag gif

set fire to our collective color will you
mock US your enemies guest
then box in a bought and sold out history yours next

imprison this Land of the free guilty
for feeding your hungry dreams nutrient rich reality
make the blessing an orphaned porridge too weak to eat

if good measure pressed down and shaken together
is not Christ's witness in an honoring son
and daughter to racism's best man come any weddings honest hand

the gestation of common men
examine the author of defined friend
and discover the American in them

hope eternal's turned page of promise remains ever veteran
because every birth-rite among the forest of unwritten leafs
sees the truth through the treason

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
