Daily missive for Thursday the 10th of November.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 10th of November.

1620.
Separatists and believers
Sworn allegiance
To a king
In a far off land
Threaten to
Overrun a country
And cleanse it of infidels
And heathens.
Called to heaven as saints
They plunder the wealth
Of the land
Pacify the natives
Re-homing
With reservation
Those who survive
And built a wall
Of self-regard
Discounting whence
They came,
The true nature
Of thanksgiving.
Pilgrims
Of independent spirit
At the limit
Of their endurance
Owed continued survival
To outsiders
And incomers
To bolster their
Revival.
Lest we forget
History entwined
As it is
With immigration
And integration
Was bound in legislation,
What common sense
Amending
A Bill of Rights
Scripted in cohort
By revolutionary intellectuals
Confined to Paris
And London town.
Do not let
The house fall down
Be bigger,
Better than this
Welcome all
With a hug and a kiss
Nothing
Could then Trump
The true meaning of
Young Americans…
Democrats and Republicans
