Enshrined in our culture is The Great Melting Pot
lo, you teeming masses we’ve Lady Liberty!
There’s no finer nation, ours is the ultimate,
we’re known for our virtue and great humility.
Whether low and humble or finest pedigree
we’ll make you feel welcomed here on our gold paved streets.
US Constitution, our blueprint for success,
protects high and lowly whether pleb or elite.
We’ve a classless system, all welcome to advance
Horatio Alger has books to show you how.
With your nose to grindstone, there’s no height you can’t reach
loose imprisoned lightning, there’s naught can stop you now.
Know our Nation’s Founders sought Justice for us all,
simply no disputing they were greatest of men.
Endowed by Creator, Right to Life, Liberty
Continental Congress and old Tom with quill pen.
Oh, Westward Expansion! Land handed us by God!
Nothing that could stop us: Destiny Manifest.
Savages enlightened and brought into the fold,
ours was shining beacon as God’s Truth does attest.
There are some naysayers who scoff at history,
say our great narrative sufferers myopia,
that our equality is farcical at best,
that our red, white and blue breeds xenophobia.
But this is most absurd for in The USA
everyone is equal Constitutionally.
Enshrined in our culture, mandated by our laws
we are all protected. By God, quite equally!
If you’re seeking freedom and place where truth’s revered
join the great migration and come to our great land.
Inherit your birthright and live where all are free,
swear you will be welcome if you’re rich as can be.
