God Bless America!

God bless America! Oh deary me,
God also belongs to the Muslim world too –
Let us remember how indecently
Fast the U.S shrunk to a narrow world view.

God bless America! God’s on our side!
But sadly for us God’s arms are quite wide,
And God blesses them, and those ones there too –
Really, my friends, what’s a good God to do ?

God bless America! Let’s go to war!
It’s easy to be fanatically sure
That we own morality, we are the best,
Leading a bunch of the second-rate rest!

God bless America, we’ve guns on our side –
Guns are a blessing when wisdom has died!

After 9/11 a rash of gung-ho, intolerant poems were written. This poem is a reaction to those poems. But all nations are the same.

 

I’m taking a really wild guess that God loves us all, and not just Americans.

 

I like this poem by Kip Williams

I like this poem because it is telling us to be religiously tolerant, it shows how cocky we can be, and guns… Oh, don’t get me started. -_- Gun control all of the way! :]
