Star Spangled Banner by R R Richardson "The haters and foster tolerance"

Jose can you see...
And I know you do
The ignorance and bigotry
That does surround you
As you work your fingers to the bone
Picking food
Building homes
For the bigoted ignorant
Eating sweet tomatoes
Complaining about illegal immigrants
Like you who  toiled the soil
To fill up their tables
And hate-filled bellies full
Jose don't give up the dream
To make this place your home
I can't rid it of hating self-righteous self esteem
But I will dream and hone
What skills I have and political will
To stifle hate and ignorance
And try my best to still
The haters and foster tolerance
Jose can you see...
That dream full-filled
