Oh, Say, Can You See - Poem by Isamar Carrillo

If I were American
maybe emotions
would be strong
as in the movies

Drama would be sharp
in itself
and the side dish of my world

Would not be
flavored up with politics
nor spiced
by misery

Treading on the most
powerful nation
I would feel
safe and secure,
protected by a fortress
stronger than steel
bigger than us.

But I'm not.
Should I want to be?
