Pledge Allegiance Poem

Headaches come to those who wait

don't let them tell you otherwise

dreaming, seeming on a Saturday night

with, without, alibis


Is there a future after Donald Trump?

A future with liberty and justice for all?

A future run without racist words?

A future without a wall?


A future that makes America Great?

The future that Kennedy saw?

I doubt it, sadly

As I place my hand on my heart

And Pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America,

one nation under many Gods,  indivisible by power ties, 


with liberty and justice for all.
