The land of opportunity.
Sweet home Alabama.
The ocean looming.
Far in the distance is America.
Statue of Liberty,
mocked with audacity.
USA rocked and rolled to jazz and soul.
The White Man ruled, 12 years a slave,
like the film, lives lost,
saved through justice and the simplicity of service.
Hard won through years of torment.
That’s America, like the Arthur Miller play,
a father to all his son’s, good old Uncle Sam.
Patriot or despot?
Libertarian or fascist?
Somewhere on the borders of reality
between two peaks
the worlds divide
and America like Israel, Palestine or Britain,
on the banks of the Jordan where the waters flow,
we will return like long ago.
