Praising America (cordially to Shirley Baucom)

Praising AMERICA 12-21-1997

AMERICA, the warm embrace
I couldn't believe what I saw
people working of every race
I'm still completely in awe

Whether from Asia, Russia or Africa
each group has something unique
enriching the culture of America
even coming from la Belgique

The result is a beautiful mosaic
in which all these shades of colors
are woven into a picture prosaic
without jealousy, hatred or horrors

It is the highest time, don't you agree
to turn the world's judgment into compassion
to turn the world's ignorance into empathy
to treat our fellow men without aggression

As we love each other unconditionally
we can end the suffering on this earth
and obtain for ourselves additionally
a most gracious spiritual rebirth

Keep going America on a par with the best
for they will profess your superior skill
your warmth distinguishes you from the rest
for me you are "the Shining City on the Hill"
