Patriotism July 4 ~ Peaceful ➰ 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!”
