Black Heart Checkered Mate


A disingenuous simple smile
can hide the truth behind a heart
checkered with black guile;
but love is pure
as spring times lure
and will open up the gate
and destroy the guile
behind the smile
of a black heart checkered mate.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,

Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
