black queer man recites pledge of allegiance


i pledge allegiance to the fag
in the united folds of my skin.
and to the Republic, that stands on my neck:

fuck you, fuck you, fuck you

finding liberty and justice for

few.

amen.

or

oh say can you see

the gavel

is now tree

that so proudly we hail

at the child’s

eyes

last

gleaming.

whose broad law and bright bombs

rained down

till’ saigon

o’er the blood that we’ve let

is still gallantly

streaming.
and white fear or red scare

we know

we’re always fair

and despite the U.N

our flag will

still be there.
o say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

o say

does

that star-spangled banner yet

weigh
o’er the land of the masters

and the home of the slaves.
