America, you

America, you

A Poem by Lynne S. Cygansky

this was a quick assignment for my poetry class. the parameters were to write an eight line, two stanza poem, each stanza beginning with "America, you"

America, you deceived me into believing
I was free and that we all were free,
When we were blind and shackled,
Especially the dark captives.

America, you incomplete codex
Of imperfect systems and rules,
Where one can walk down the street with skittles in their pocket,
But at what cost?
