America the

(with apologies to Katharine Lee Bates and the beautiful America)

O beautiful for spacious cells,
For amber waves of pain,
For rectal feeding’s majesties,
Gitmo and Abu Ghraib!
America! America!
George shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
For “free” and “detainee”!
