(7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)

America.... Thou Doth Shine

America, america, thou doth
Shine among human kind
Pulverised by all cultures,
With many wars behind,
Both good and bad, your people
Are kind understanding,
Except for the few misled
By the tounges of polticians
For their livelyhood and luxuries,
Your work, endurance for the world
So massive that none
Could match, but tried to be
Copied by many, and tried to be
Entered into the right and wrong
Ways to be spoken
As an American, melting into
Thy culture of prosperity
And tolernce made by
Sacrifices your fathers made.

A very thoughtful write Ravikiran! Thank you for sharing! Thad
Thank you very much for your kind words. Despite what some might say, we are not monsters. We go to work and come home to play with our children and grandchildren. We want to be happy and safe. We want these things for all the citizens of the world. Thanks again.
