WALKABOUTSVERSE 41 OF 230

Poem 41 of 230:  EVEN AFTER LINCOLN, STEINBECK, AND KING

Written at a public toilet, by the
    Statue of Liberty:
“What of Equality, Fraternity;
    And Democracy!?”

The U.S.A. has aided dictators
    (Right-Wing leaders, of course),
So some’s bestowal of democracy
    Is hypocrisy.

(C) David Franks 2003
