America, the land I love with my heart and soul,
since I was a wee lad in the days of Camelot.
The last nine years have seen division,
no longer are we a large melting pot.
While our country has its internal squabbles,
we still retain that mysterious glow.
It continues to draw people to our borders
even though our nation is reaching a new low.
Great Britain is a Constitutional monarchy,
with a hereditary Head of State, a queen.
She remains at the heart of her great nation,
regardless of Prime Minister, her image still seen.
It’s this a visible sign of consistency to the world,
that America lacks; at the nation’s heart.
If our forefathers would have shared my vision,
a change of President’s wouldn’t tear us apart.
Of course, there is no royal presence on earth,
that exists beyond the magnetism of temptation.
But a monarch can be an example of unity,
to the people of our divided American nation.
Perhaps our citizens should seek a lawful remedy,
by calling for a Constitutional referendum.
Then, we could add the issue of monarchy,
to a list of possible remedies on the agendum.
Just an idea I choose to share with you,
a patron of my blog of diverse poetry.
Please excuse my lack of artistic expression,
for I’m not Shakespeare; “to be or not to be.”
Note: “to be or not to be.” – Hamlet Act III, Scene 1 – William Shakespeare
