    Should
    America

    hold its promise
    the Trail of Tears
    would not propagate
    from one generation to the next

    Corporations
    would not possess
    my bloody forty acres

    Strange Fruit
    would not continue
    to be the anthem of a people

    oh,
    and...

    genocide
    could not be colored in
    traditional red white and blue

    If ~
    America

    held to its premise :huh1:
    athletes would champion
    a nation which upholds its Constitution
