Poem

Merry Christmas, America

When you’re not with the love of your life in America
Love the woman who once was your wife in America

Then America was a terror for tyrants and a triumph for liberty
Now babies are caged in Texas by President forty-five of Amerika

He’s undignified, is unqualified, talks nonsense, zealous
Gunrunners pray his taste for porn will revive America

All lives matter, invisible ones as well: Take a knee.
Let a fist bloom. Souls of black folk will survive America

Machiavelli said Rome’s universal imperialism led to universal
Weakness. Jesus filled the vacuum with universal love, America

Had the yearning for love not ruined Rafiq
He too could have been a poet to terrorize America
