My homeland

It is the land which, through the years, the brave aspired to;

Whose shores with open arms have welcomed every creed and hue;

Where all ideas of "right and wrong" our forebears could devise

Have yielded and adapted in the name of compromise.

A place where words like "freedom" still inspire and enthrall

All those who forsake tyranny for justice under law.

A wise man said it is the last best hope mankind has got:

This land of never ending change we call the melting pot!
