REQUEST BY AN AMERICAN POET

Sometimes, as an American, and a poet, The tears flow down face... All countries seem to hate us, As though they lived in an Eternal state of kindness and grace? I wonder, why any American would dare post a poem here. For no matter how many souls from The USA, died for their country, I wonder.....do they cheer? Dunkirk, Normandy, I guess nothing do they mean? When crackpots like Hitler almost swallowed Europe as a snake. No, they snicker at the USA every chance they take.* Americans were not raised to loathe any other nation. But to learn, work hard, and make of our lives, a humble, God-oriented sensation. We, of all colors live here, we ended both slavery and living on plantations. Even those Americans, sadly, freeloading at every opportune chance Have fellow freeloaders in other countries doing the Cash-In dance. Perhaps, time to realize no country in history is perfect, that is pure fakery and nonsense! At this time in history, gripped by fear and loss of lives, Go after the real villains, in all countries Yes, and they do march and thrive! Their goal to create havoc, separate us by race and in truth we need to lock arms, not spit in any nations's face. A lack of poetical grace! 7/24/2021 * Mean, vicious remarks about the USA are usually found in comments. I do not read these poets anymore. Remember, this is an international community, please?* Do you think there can be world peace, when poets cannot be peaceful at Poetry Soup?

Jealousy is always green with envy... And notice the country to which everyone emigrates. Hint: it ain't Russia, Red China, Iran, N. Korea... Way to stand up for our great country, Pangie! ~ gw

You are a riot. People don't seem to understand, America has no OUTAGRATION QUOTA. EXCEPT FOR HOLLYWOOD BILLIONAIRES. Look at the numbers of Covid-grants crossing our borders.19,000 infected people in July alone...who can refuse vaccinations. But Americans cannot. This is meshugenutz+ Like killing Amercans. criminals, drugs...allowed in. Ameicans treated as trash..like prisoners by Washington DC. The SQUAD loves this...Pangie

Jealousy. Self loathing. Many who criticize the USA are just fakes, I believe, paid propagandist. They surface and float about in many media forums, like slime on swamp water. Just gut observations -- sadly, I know nothing? As Trump says, "Drain the swamp!" Not that easy apparently -- muck tentacles everywhere.

What vivid imagery! The swamp has changed into quicksand. I hung around with Europeans in Chicago for decades. Nobody said they hated America. But I know now we are despicable to many. Murderous countries, especially think they are Gods gift to the universe! PS was a beheading today in tbe Middle East. I saw them on You Tube. How about drowning young boys in cages! Am sure you tube no longer has them. The WOKE protects murder and lies. THE Swamp is sick. Especially the squad....omg, Joe.. Thank you....PANGIE XXOO

Some people aren't happy if they are not hating something or some country, different when America comes to their aid when they are in trouble, shame some of it is home grown, if they dont like it emigrate to China, they'd soon come running back. Tom

LOL... Emigrate to China. Perfect. There they learn what it's lime to walk a line or be done away with. Great place for baby haters. One child only or a doctor will kill it for you. Like a baby is a cockroach? Plenty now think that. It makes me want to vomit...Pangie XXOO Thoughtful comment, thank you

Our country has done so much to help other countries over the years. It makes no sense to me how they can hate us. What makes me angry is when immigrants come and speak badly against us. If you don't like it here, why come? I salute you for your boldness, Pangie! Blessings, Kim M

KIM, MY DAUGHTER GAVE ME A LESSON. IT IS NOT pleasant. Much of the world has always looked down on the USA. Now Americans buy the same idea.. Immigrants? Some do.Some do not. Nonetheless, there in nothing kind on our part by allowing infected people to walk in. A great way to kill AMERICAns. We, the terrible nation? All others are clean? am not bold enough. I have not even started.kids don't learn our world history well enough. Hence, we are punching bags of the universe! Kim, no free speech= Communism. We are already there.watch tbe American History Channel. Other countries that think they are free, are not.i can only raise a warning flag. Voices silenced! You bet.and nobody will fight back in the present. I do know two Poets here who do. Pangie XXOO

In spite of countries hating us, many people want to come and live in America. I hope that those who do come here truly want to be Americans. It is so frustrating to have people criticize our country after they are here. There is always room for improvement but it must be done legally.

If you go to any country you cannot crawl in. Read the requirements for foreign countries. We had 900 in July cross our borders with COVID. Do we have a death wish? And while our fellow Americans make us wrong for not getting the vaccine what does this group say to ilegal border crossers with COVID who refuse the vaccine? The cartels are making a fortune. As America sinks into a financial abyss, CoVid is allowed to come in, Add illegal firearms. No country would allow such nonsense. But criticism aplenty. Pangie xx00

Chantelle, a great comment on peace and prayer as a way to unite. The Lord must wonder about us. We bar Him from places and from living within us. I also realizeHe is coming back to restore peace,Meaning tbe destruction of the world totally. So obvious man cannot do this" too dense. Peace is in tbe next Life, not here.Many going to hell ..not all believe this. The world meaner every day. Angel is a forbidden word, I wish I could list all the Nasty words not forbidden, Have a good one, respect the internationality of this site. Pangie xx
