Drench Me American Sky -

They want to burn the flag today
to them America's blood born banner
represents jingoism, a false heroism of a broken day
a culture illegitimate in divine manner,
feeling excluded from rich spiritual deposits
cursing the color of a People truly progressive
a breed disinterested in the Marxist and Maoist, 
feminists and racists come to set fire to Liberty's starry votive,
impudently waving the national rags
of failed narco states and theocratic tyrannies
chanting dystopic glories of thuggish brags
with savage violence assaulting children,  women, and men with American identities, 
have they ever bothered to read the 1st, 9th, or 13th Amendments
will they ever realize the illusion of ideological hatred,
in our land they live with victory's compliments
yet grown fat on the lies they've been easily fed,

We, Americans,  have a heritage,  and citizenry
composed of good natured, disciplined hearts,
educated, informed, and compassionate to humanity, 
folk, from every continent,  creed and diverse smarts,
Come, you ignorant miscreants
come and burn this flag I wear with honor and pride,
come burn it,
Over My Dead Body!

J.A.B.

Your deep love for America and its roots is inspiring Justin. The protective fury of this one is colorful and these words cry out for so much more than just freedom alone. You've got a good balance of sophistication and much needed wildness for this composition. Pure beauty here in your perfect, crazy way. Always, Laura

I feel wise and strong within the warmth of your understanding Laura, your viewpoint is beautiful. Freedom can't live without crazy...you've gotta be a little crazy to want to be free, and you've gotta be big crazy to fight for your self respect and rights Poetess...J.A.B.

I would like to read Thomas Paine's book, Common Sense Harry...a common gratitude would be nice, however, ignorance and dissent are rights guaranteed to the citizens of the United States of America. In America, a man or woman can learn and teach anything they desire, provided that the knowledge is not employed to assault another, or infringe other's civil rights...long live America...J.A.B.
