American History X

American History X

A Poem by John Dennis Gillespie

We scrummaged out west for gold. 
Stories left untold; 
We are American History X with a future 
dark and bold. 
Flags waved too high; 
Devils in the heart, patriots in mind 
Believing what we hear, but living far too blind. 
This republic weakly stands, 
A nation built on broken lands. 
Led by who speak of flourishing with blood upon their hands. 
We have revolutionalized monopoly. 
Communized Democracy. 
Globalized terrorism and forgot our own hypocrisy.
