Melting Pot Proud and The Nationalistic Hideous Shroud

A most excellent delving into American History
Questions current virulent Anti-Immigrant/ Refugee views

Why I remember my public school teachers exclaiming the United States
As being a melting pot!
Where our welcoming nature

To all freedom seeking immigrants
Our nation’s greatest value!


T’was taught in public schools!


Later on as a 101st Airborne trained soldier


I proudly trained at Fort Campbell
Daily for war



With the most dedicated of crews

Alas I feel now
What hath happened to my flag endeavored vows?

A shot across my fellow soldier’s bow?


A bitter betrayal! O the heathen sentiment doth supplant all manner of gracious nobility!


From those who support
Penning up children

Ripped apart of their mothers
As if she a sow

Fanning the flames
Of faux patriotic outrage


At those who merely seek brighter clouds?

Is Un-American!


It taints our beloved soldier’s sacrifice
Covering and smothering our promised American Dream values


Which hath led so many of our ancestors out of the shallows

With a Nationalistic hideous shroud
