Women of Tahrir Square

So why did they lose?
Is it because
of the broke goose!
Or what goes
Or man with big nose
Just some words
You choose

A Day At a Zoo

We went to the zoo
We met this tiger named sue
She was roaring at this man’s 
She clearly meant no harm
Maybe next time he should 
cover his tiger tattoo

USA Vs Canada

I watched the USA beat the USA today,
Losing a winnable hockey game.
We had a great defense, but then 
Chose to give the gold to Canada again.

Short Usa poem by Jomarc Bernardo| Details | |


Beautiful bloom,
The excitement of the nation
Beautiful doom
A pure countries damnation

The beauty of a flower
Is that of the oppressive power
God bless the U.S.A 
For remaining strong today

Fractured America

Nothing but a fractured skeleton 
Remains of what we once called freedom 
That eagle is too dead to fly any higher
We tried to make good of this jester's plan
Now that concept has gone expired

Short Usa poem by Thomas Martin| Details | |


I pledge allegiance to to the flag
and the corporations
which it upholds
(and to the gmo's and burgers for which it stands)
One nation under corporatism,
with prisons and earphones for all.

Short Usa poem by Robert Pettit| Details | |

It Doesn't Pay

Don't do the crime 
if you can't do the time. 
It takes a lot of money in bail 
to keep arrested folks out of jail. 
Justice is blind, but can be severe. 
Crime never pays over here.

Soldiers Girlfriend

I’m proud of the man in front of me

Dressed in his ACUs

But i miss the guy you use to be

Blue Jeans and your boots.

I miss the way you drive your truck

i miss the sweet soft stares.

I miss the man you use to be

I’m not sure hes still there

Armless Nation

      we thrash about
in a pool of our bones
squirting ink into the eyes 
of a million long dead ghosts

   beneath the blackness of our ink
we snip off the arms of our sanity
one by one by one.... we slowly sink
into echoes of our snapping beak

Said the USA

Said the U.S.A.
We soaring on three set of wings
Eagle! Our strength
Dove! Our compassion
Turkey! Our sustenance  
Tell us not to choose our demise
Together we shall never fall
Indeed we are the greatest of nations

Betsy Ross of Colonial days
Could never imagine the ways
Our United States flag would be blessed
To fly on the Moon and Mount Everest.

Lewis And Clark

They were Meriwether Lewis and William Clark,
Her name was Sacagawea.
On an expedition they did embark
Finding the passage to the sea.

Down the Missouri they traveled, 
Then slithered 'round the Snake River bend.
Rocky Mountain weather and sickness battled;
At the Columbia River they'd end.

Short Usa poem by Nigel Fox| Details | |

Lock Down

The bogey man is here
Uncle Gunnysack
No longer hiding in English peat bogs
The Bag Man who carries a bag and kidnaps those who don't behave

Do you hear him knocking
Why don’t you want to go to bed
He will take you away if you wont obey your parents
He will pull you up into tiny holes in the ceiling

A siren will sound when all is safe

Short Usa poem by Daniel Human| Details | |

Abduction of logic

With flashing lights 
And eerie noises
On many nights 
With astonished poises
People look up and see
A UFO, two or three
An abduction story
In every group
Attracting glory
- a press scoop!
Funny how these frequent visits
Of flying saucers and other spaceships
Only find one place to stay
And that is in the country called the USA

John F Kennedy

John F. Kennedy 1917-1963 The great 35th president of US It wasn't really a success He tried to stop the missile bases There were lot of angry faces When there was about to be a war Peace was what he asked for Texas was the place he was shot Later, the criminal was caught He didn't survive the pain His people cried like the rain

Short Usa poem by Jomarc Bernardo| Details | |


The class clown 
Made society Frown
Should put his *** down

I know barely anything on politics
Probably nothing

And this fake satire
Isn't the proper attire
For whats up
Don't take a sip from my cup

And open your mind really
stop being silly

I make kids laugh
As If I'm a sexy giraffe
I'm really the plague 
Hitting the young youth

Just grow up
and Drink your own cup

Old image

Old image

One evening,
She was showing me her image.
It was very small and old.
We met through Skype.
Also, she offered an old image.

Another year, we met at hotel.
For memory,
She gifts me her picture.
same old image.

For long time,
she was absent.
Suddenly,I lost her voice.

In the evening, full of sadness.
I teared her image.
her old image.

Short Usa poem by Mike Conway| Details | |

Pledge Not The Allegiance

It's the third verse,
I got the urge to purge
All the curt words I've splurged,
I've submerged in sin,
I'll go to church repent,
Then go curse again,
Lets reverse this trend
We nurse tolerance,
When it might offend,
If I white wash my fence,
So try to not get tense,
When I do not defend, 
Those who chose to be dense
And not use their two cents,
To show kids the reverence,
For the pledge of allegiance.

the morning dewdrops the sap on the trees the wind blowing pleasingly a stroll I will take a joyous promenade with my umbrella and cane. rain oh rain will show dawn is to enjoy. gloomy not, away I go pouring cats and dogs. glumly aurora dulcetly I sing “Rain Dogs.” ______________________| Penned on August 31, 2014!
