National Poetry Month 07 — Star-Spangled Sentinel of Liberty

Captain America sonnet, enjoyed reading this today!

Think Wink

Star-Spangled Sentinel of Liberty,
my mentor and my brother. I’ve watched you wage
your war across the days eternally.
When does tomorrow end this wicked age?
There are so many people who can’t stand
up for themselves—enslaved to skin and wealth.
They need a hero who will fight the Man
who aims to chain them to His will with stealth.
He lies, He cheats, deceives us all. No one
they know can cut the cord and break the chains
that ‘slaves them to His dreams. They are undone
beneath His burden. Who will end their pain?
To be the hero that they need will cost.
So be it then, I count my life as lost.
