America the Beautiful by all was sung,

Until our leaders claimed a new rung.

Imbued with the Bible, they turned conceptional,

And declared we're actually A. the Exceptional.

And it serves all purposes under the sun,

To skirt silly laws or to pull out a gun.

Invasions become issues: "quality of life,"

That spread women's lib and make iPhones rife.

Safeguarding cities where terror once pranced.
