The Inevitable American

it is addressed thusly:
An ode.
it reads:
The inevitable American, did we forget
What he can, has he yet
Found his home in the world at large
When its gone, that house of cards
A land is either a people or a law
We are neither, as many saw
For the only rules we have we ignore
Even our schools seem to abhor
That liberty which is our only truth
Dark as pitch they stain the youth
And forget that law has no respect of men
Ask then not how -- just ask when.
