I am from the United States
by Randy McClave
Where in line for the toilet people waits,
I too live in a very troubled country
Where we are a land sadly known for racists and bigotry.
We accuse all poor immigrants as drug lords
And we give the wealthy, humanitarian awards,
Foreigners live a life in both poverty and fear
Then the wealthy cry, "why do they want to come here"!
When from tyranny and suffering immigrant are escapists
Our leaders call them murderers, and rapists,
And when they see the poor, needy and starvation
Our leaders laugh and then they say, "Haitian"!
I look at our leaders wearing their fine clothes
Then I imagine our president with his upturned nose,
From a shithole country I am no resident
But, in our country, we do have a shithole president.
