Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
The summer so far had been long and hot, Mummy and Daddy were off on their yacht
To pass the long days until learning returned, she would make the most of the time she had earned
The farmer seemed pleased that she was so willing, to work in the fields and help with the tilling
As well as the picking of veggies and fruit, she had gathered her thoughts that were now so astute
The powers that be that decided her life, had caused her concern, had caused them all strife
Her Mother was noted, for her charity work, her Father only known for being a political jerk
The US Anthem, never meant to condemn, was its true meaning really Us and Them?
She was the privileged child with no cares in this world, and she carried her flag completely unfurled
But no matter how open, how truthful, how keen, she was always caught up in the media machine
She worked hard and long throughout the hot day, and the cornucopia begun to heavily weigh
She rested a while, the harvest outpouring, and noticed above her an eagle was soaring
Silently rising up effortlessly into the sky, watching her intently with his piercing gold eye
The rooster, who had followed her from the outset, also spied the eagle and was starting to fret
As she slowly wiped away the sweat from her brow, she gently whispered inside a solemn vow
Anthems are one thing, true goodness is not, I will not become part of the hysteria plot
Make an Ass out of you and me, if you only assume, that being real only ends up in dismal doom
Let the seeds of humanity continue to grow, and no matter how poor or rich, reap what you sow
Stay genuine, be generous, charitable and liberal, and remain as always The Lady Bountiful.
