The United States is a misnomer
The Destroyed States of the Americas has an honest, forthright, sound.
Countries steal other countries all the time.
England stole my ancestors’ country.
But I don’t live in other countries, I live here,
On the rubble of a civilization so advanced
That Europeans could not even see it.
Here where I live:
Their names: Nipmuc, Mohawk, Nonotuck, Norwottuck, and
Deadly battles with English names: Turners Falls, Springfield, Deerfield, Hatfield.
Out west today, the meager leavings of their land have money-making dirt.
So out they go.
