Poem… What shall America compare thee to?


A poem for the 45th President of the United States of America –whose name is not worth mentioning…


What shall America compare thee to?

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

What shall America compare thee to?
Thou art mostly bigoted and racist:
Rough and evil words do shake your hairdo;
Election’s lease revealed your sexist twist.
Hot flashes of cameras shine.
Your mind in its orange complexion dimmed,
When evil KKK’s support met late decline:
Your scattered nature’s course untrimmed.
In hope, thy temporal summer shall fade,
Succumbing in thy hate-filled race.
History shall abhor you in the shade,
When the lines of age dry upon your face.
So long as men and women understand…
So long as reason, good and love withstand…


–You can find the poem in Caribbean Poet, by Luis S. González-Acevedo–
