84234 - Born in the USA

N. Lygeros

Many people know
this famous song
but very few
are really listening
to its words.
Oh, my Lord, tell them
that they are more important
than the music
if they want to understand in depth
what is its story.
Because barbarity is still there…
The war was not sufficient
to save the brother
who died in this hell
although he had a woman
in Saigon.
And now only
with a picture
the poor guy is trying
to understand
how this is still possible
after so many years.
But I listen to the lyrics
and I will never forget
that we have
to continue
the struggle for justice.
