Nine Eleven

September eleventh, what happened in Nigeria that day?

Been obsessed with Imperialist USA.

Today I wonder what happened in

Cambodia

Kenya

On 9/11/01

Those souls I hope are free of pain

Have met their maker

Connected with loved ones

But this America

This is America...

I will not claim her this year

I will not proclaim my citizenship with pomp and circumstance and glee

This land is not of the brave

And we have never been free
