An American Shadow

An American shadow
in the land of no rain,
we’re the makers of widows
and the fillers of graves;
Freedom is a heavy coin
no matter how much it is praised.

i have never been crippled
though i have never walked,
i have never been blind
though i have never watched,
i have never been deaf
though i have never listened,
i have never been mute
though i choose not to speak,
i have never been imprisoned
though i refuse to be free.
