An Observation on American Values

It sends me to the farthest edges of my will

When my fellow country men distinguish themselves as patriots

What guides them?

It cannot be God, for all they feel is hatred

God tells them to love thy neighbor and Jesus instructs to give to the poor

Their philosophy tells them to insurrect thy neighbor and take from the poor

But cannot be philosophy, for they cannot even spell the word

It must be a love of history and the need to repeat it

Truth comes in two books, the Bible and their check book

Just as peace is created through killing
