Poem – America the (un) beautiful

The Blad Eagle drank of the poisoned water

Feasted on poisoned prey

Flew through poisoned air

The bill became stuck in plastic wrap

It fell from the tree that was promptly cut down after dying of the posions

Stamped onto coins and shirts

We worship the fallen

Without understanding

This tragedy is

“Made in America.”
