American Thieves
by JS Schilling

Born from the earth we all so feel
said, "...nothing really here to steal."

We are human
they were human too.

Took us to America!
and they still hung us
for being there.

And now they say,

"Brothers, friends, and we..."
I hear it on the news, they call us
"Brothers, friends and we..."

And every night they still come 'round,
and want to hang us
for being on their ground.
