I am an American


I am an American

To be an American in today’s world
Requires a tolerance untold.
Unlike the days of years gone by,
When humans were bought and sold.

To be an American in today’s world
Requires a wealth profound.
Unlike the days fo years gone by,
When “rich” was a small piece of ground.

To be an American in today’s world
Requires an education deluxe.
Unlike the day s of years gone by,
When “passing” could be sheer luck.

To be an American in today’s world
Requires shown Pride in the Red, White and Blue.
Unlike the days of years gone by,
When loyalty alone guided you.

To be an American in today’s world
Is really a simple thing.
It’s the “pledge of Allegiance”, “In God We Trust”
And the “Bell of Freedoms Ring”.
