COMPLETE TEXT: AMERICAN MAIDEN ©2020
Virtuous and strong,
She came to us –
Entrusting her gifts
of empathy, liberty,
and equality.

The splendor
of her benevolence –
Proclaimed to the world
with elegance and grace;
Given in the spirit
of freedom’s delicate embrace.

So young,
So beautiful,
So hopeful,
So devout –
To the possibility...
of humanity.

Did we love her?
Defend her?
Keep her safe from harm?
Or did we ravish her?
Violate her?
Defile and desecrate her?

Manifesting her distress
into ever increasing alarm?

Now we seek to abandon her –
Disowned and dicarded
on the desolate streets of despair.
Naked, alone and destitute;
hemorrhaging from the wounds
and injuries carelessly inflicted
without due concern or care.

Do not blemish the name
of this innocent maiden
so faithful and fair –
Submitting herself so selflessly to us,
undeserving of her sacred trust;
still remaining unaware.

The rapists of America have been identified;
The criminals now finally recognized.
The blame and fault is ours completely –
Because “We, the people” are culpable
for all of this indignity.
