America, To A Whole Idea

Folks got their freedom
With honors of saints
As competence emerged
Humanity arose
 
Victory marches
Over battlefields of hard labor
 
A union, must we say?
All 50 stars?
 
A nation united
Still divided
Blacks and Whites
Fair and just
 
Politically
 
Oh, we carried his ideas  
After he died  
 
Still ideas, goes astray
 
Dreamy ideals
Therefore a dream
 
Equal ... yet unequal
Tis the nation's truth
 
Histories remembered
Interpretations freed
 
Ideals then... that the ideas crippled
 
More, and more, to keep needs in control
Adjusted for improvements
Never improved enough
 
Which is best
Never can we decide
