Still I Lie by Molly Beale

Rise? Rise. Dust of America,
Rise

The dream.
…………………. Hope.
Empty talk is over; for under
some lacklustre God have shoulders
dropped, factories rust shuttered
how our bible gives Babylon
God’s middle finger and
apple pie-….too much
noise from bodies thigh high
diamond glinting, righteously
broken, the way I like to see;

We must speak our minds openly.
(A person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10)
No more bitter, twisted lies. These
fleshed teardrops scattered like tombstones, my
people in the very dirt
like air – their different reality.    Fluxed poverties,
cash flushed excite this daybreak that’s wondrously clear.
greasy dimes,  a dollar welling swelling rise rise rise,
one dropping heavy as a nation made of flies.
Robbing so much potential…

Face challenges,
get the job done.   Merely
an orderly and peaceful power transfer.  Why are
you besest with gloom?    It’s just
moons and suns the same,
I will fight for you.
Every breath- never ever let you
down.
………….Fellow Americans?
………………………………………….People of the world?

Is it my dirtless walk?     Does it come as a surprise?

……………………(right by the pussy)
My oil wells
pumping, beyond this
white new hut of history’s shame…
But-……I am going to give them back
The Strong, wealthy, proud……..The Slave.
A nation is only living as long as it is striving,
rooted in pain. A past that is also the present.
Back to you– TOGETHER AGAIN!!!!!!

American people,
have no fear.
I Stir souls, lift sights-   heal our divisions

You may shoot me with your words,
cut me with your eyes- But, it belongs to
everyone gathered here.  We all
bleed the same red blood, all enjoy the same
glorious freedoms- when you open
your heart to patriotism, there’s no room for
…………………………prejudice.
This HOPE.     buy and hire.   proud borders.  military.
…………………………………………………………………………………………A Flag.
American carnage first. Never to be ignored again.
This your celebration,…………….(not your victory, not your triumph)
from a past where the establishment
has protected itself with the certainty of tides…. NEW VISION,
such shame.  Start winning again.
Own interests first- an example to shine on
Other-……disappeared over horizon.  Complete
eradication began in your
living room.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Shores-  red blue white……blackbrown oceans
this earth.
They have been magnificent, the gifts my ancestors gave.

But everyone is listening now.
God bless America, rise, rise, God bless America

Rise.
