An unexceptional (American) song

I was over singing to my Mother and the other sufferers of dementia this morning when I began warbling the disgusting second verse of this well known anthem…so well known that three or four of my audience members joined in. Like all good Republicans I was outraged…..outraged to realize it apologizes that America isn’t perfect. The composer must of been a commie or she must have been a student of Obama’s mentor Saul Alinsky.

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare of freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

What’s worse I just found the lyrics on a website for Boy Scouts. What is the world coming to?
