Patriotism July 4 ~ Peaceful โžฐ America

“PATRIOTISM!” a poem for: JULY 4, Independence Day 2019 (Thursday)

I’m about as patriotic – as a can of Campbell’s Soup,

And I’m-so-darn religious, during the sermon, I might go for-a-poop!

But!!! IF you WANT me to be religious – and that’s sure to make you happy,

Just pray to GOD, God-the-Father, and I will call Him “Pappy,”

And I will worship Uncle Sam too – and touch him on the hem,*

And say: “GOD! bless America!” AND “Fill-IT – to the brim,”

For-I’ll-be-sure-to-toast America, The Land of All That’s FREE,

Even though we-imprison – about-a-million-souls times-three,

Which, comparatively – is A LOT of folks! staying-in-jails-today;

That’s 2-to-3-million in-carcerants – “enjoying?”-a-prison-stay!

They’re-locked-right-up to-show-how-great the-business-of-crime’s-become!

It seems to me – that-MANY-offenses – are really kind-of dumb,

Not justifying, for-instance, the-petty-thief-locked-up-with-a-guy,

Who raped and killed a bunch of strangers! So, THIS-4th, perhaps-I –

Will thank some God of Freedom, and-of-course OUR UNCLE SAM,

That I AM – NOT-in-jail! like-Christians-in-Viet-NAm,

or Muslims in Guantanamo! Yeah, I’m-SURE-some-are-pretty-mean,

But! Can brutality – and torture really be-seen,

In a land that says IT tolerates – religions – and the poor?

I pray for many sad, sick folks! There-seem-to-be-more-and-more!

HAPPY 4th TO EVERYONE! I-hope-we-can-all-get-along,

And bless-one-another with-a-smile-and-a-greeting,

And- strive for-“RIGHT!” NOT-“wrong!”

    โ€œEARLY MORNING BIRDIE SONG!โ€ย – happy birthday to you ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

    โ€œEARLY MORNING BIRDIE SONG!โ€ a poem Sunday: September 9, 2018 โ€ฆ a.k.a.: โ€œWe Birdies Donโ€™t Need No Stinkinโ€™ Butter Thank-You Very Much!โ€ ๐Ÿ™‚

    The birdies have come, once again (to) flap and sing,

    To greet us all over – such freedom they bring:

    Flapping & Chirping & Pooping ALL OVER,

    And squawking at (feral) kittie – and our doggie named Rover,

    And the natural process of life has begun,

    Once More! To amaze & renew – WHEREโ€™S THE SUN?

    For-it warms and enlivens each gay, little bird,

    As they eat and they sing and they are NOT perturbed!

    For the things of our World have infected them NOT,

    Like cancer and sorrow and โ€œWhat have I got?โ€

    And โ€œWhat have I done?โ€ and โ€œWhat more is needed?โ€

    The birdies proclaim: โ€œYOUR LIFE! YOUโ€™VE IMPEDED!

    With silly-human notions and long-term range goals,

    And voting and engines and cell phones and souls,

    And we-couldnโ€™t-care-less, as we gaily partake,

    Of our good morning bread crumbs – and some-water in The Lake –

    And a chirp here & a chirp there & a flap and a flutter –

    And weโ€™re-just-happy-to-be-here, with some bread without butter! ๐Ÿ™‚ -yum!
