Written by Josiah Enoch Jones, a real American.

A new roof
vinyl siding
credit card maxing for
a patch of green
who needs
purple mountain majesties
when you can workworkwork
in the boot strap pulling
Land of the Brave
Home of the Free

I clawed my way to the middle

Trump will save me
He’s no nonsense
speaks for the little guy
not like those others
I’m no xenophobe-what’s that?
or other-phobe
he speaks for me
no commie socialist, muslin
or un-hot lady in pantsuit
grandma for me

In the Land of the Brave
Home of the Free

I clawed my way to the middle

His wife is hot
she’s a model
he gets the best ass
because he’s rich and
smart
I can be that too
he will make America
great again
I will have what he has
because he says so

In the Land of the Brave
Home of the Free

I can get out of this shit hole
and live like him
I won’t foreclose on my house
I will be able to pay my kid’s
college tuition
I won’t pay more in taxes
I will have what he has
and if I don’t
I will kill him
but I know
that won’t come to pass
since he will make
America great again

I clawed my way to the middle

I deserve it

I’m an American
Goddamit

  2. Hey Erica,
    That was a fuckn potent kiss-ass righteous ‘Home of the Brave’ poem.
    Damn! grrrl, It’s Emma Lazarus ‘eyes wide open’ to the neo-vision
    post acquisition of the ‘masses yearning to be FREE’.
    ‘…still yearning-

  3. Tellin’ it like it is as always, fantastic! Hey, we clawed our way to the middle…and some of us are holdin’on by our stubby bitten fingernails just to stay afloat…but alas the great white golden hope is up there…shiny and rich just like we all want to be….it’s the second coming…Trump! Watch all those folks goose step in line as he marches over all the scapegoats he’s created. Crazy time in America!
