My America

My America

The very life of this country is infected
It’s fabric unraveled by hatred
In My America
The same nation that once cried
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” *
Now grinds its heel into them
Driving them into the dirt
Behold thy America
In all her glory and shame
Her rotted flesh bared before you
Her arms that once held those who cried
Now banish them
For if they are different, the must be wrong?
In My America
If they are different
They don’t belong
In My America
Their diversity is dangerous
So we want them gone
Not in our America
Not in my America
