America the Beautiful by Celia Turner

Poet Bio

No need to send out sailing ships
nor priests hidden behind a cross.
Give jobs. They will bite their lips,
buckle under easier for a boss.

Their rivers and land for plunder,
we don’t need to own.
Waste cleanup, their blunder,
so far away from our home.
