America’s greatness,
still shadowed by clouds of hatred.
A history of lessons
not yet learned,
Ignorance our teacher.
“Look how far we’ve come”
seared into our mind,
repetitive lies take the form of truth.
 
Brotherhood and Unity.
Ideological bricks
constructing “equalities” path.
Fairness holds little worth
beyond skin pigmentation.
 
 
Declarations of diversity destroyed,.
Our Melting pot,
molded by manifest destiny,
now overflows
with a panicked lock of a car door
or clutch of purse.
 
Still, arrogantly we protest,
“Im not really racist”

(2014)

View about America and the hidden ignorance in our society.
