DEMOCRACY USA

“Where is your honour?”

“In a cell
at Guantanamo Bay.”

“Where is your pride?”

“At the end of an
American boot.”

“What of your tears?”

“Dissolved
in the sea.”

“And your heart?”

“Beneath
desert sands.”

“Your spirit, where is your spirit?”

“In the mountains
high
among the clouds.”
