American Romance~by Paul Lenzi



American Romance


Illustration from Marketing Site for CGM Squared

the romantic renegades
culture’s iconoclasts
defying convention
with insurgent ideas
by their own unique lights
they crash through perimeters
eschewing old doors
cut new courses
across virgin landscapes
and uncharted seas

these are the dreamers
who imagine a nation
still untapped of potential
who build the new engines
of positive change
who innovate normalcy
tearing new holes
to an uncertain future
where American grit
might reclaim the heights

while most fall ignored
with eccentric repute
some turn round to find
they acquired a train
some call these anathema
to uneasy conservatives
too in love with tradition
but conservative truth
knows America’s tradition
loves the bold and the brave
