Maybe I Missed It…

 

Maybe I missed it…

When we became anointed

Rulers of the world,

Taking nation’s resources,

Conquering their citizens.

 

And tell me for what?

Could it be for our profit

As it always is?

All the savages be damned

They can’t stop us anyway!

 

But the refugees,

The wars and the violence…

This isn’t our fault.

Why take blame for our actions

When you can blame someone else.

  1. While I wholeheartedly applaud you for introspecting, I wonder if there’s soul searching happening at the other end, too? It’s not always your fault, there are provocations & a need for you to get involved sometimes. I agree you’re in the conundrum of being the most looked up to & the most hated nation at the same time and sadly coz of you not walking the talk when it comes your values, the very thing that makes America so great.

    • Perhaps you are right, I suppose that only time will tell. All I know is that our current state of affairs did not begin with President Obama he just happens to be the latest caretaker. Thank you for your thoughtful comment Kunal, it is greatly appreciated.
