Mama America

In a Patriotic Key

Mama America was very beautiful in her young days

Oh, but how pain and hardship has made her age.

She has watched her children suffer

At the cruel words and hands of one another.

Many of America's children make her proud

As they learn to escape the ominous cloud

Of bias, self-hatred, and sin

To discover the brilliance of God's Spirit within

Children of America, you need to rethink

Your life's language and listen to your Father speak

His words of salvation and peace

Granting you a treasure that you will never have to seek.

* written with love in a patriotic key *
