TNFro Is Reading ee cummings and My own Stuff

“next to of course god america i
love you land of the pilgrims’ and so forth oh
say can you see by the dawn’s early
country ’tis of
 centuries come and go
and are no more.
 what of it we should worry
in every language even deafanddumb
thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry
by jingo by gee by gosh by gum
why talk of beauty what could be more beaut-
iful than these heroic happy dead
who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter

they did not stop to think they died instead
then shall the voice of liberty be mute?”

He spoke. And drank rapidly a glass of water

Next to of course God america i By e. e. cummings

ee cummings a pacifist I don’t think would understand the militarization of every regime in the world including our own, he would be horrified with what is going on in the border, and he would be making memes all day everytime POTUS opens his mouth.  I will discuss this poem the 2020 Democratic Candidate Line up, Chattabooks and a lot more in this week’s episode of #TNFroIsReading.
