The Individual

in France is crushed
because the herd is paramount
and dislikes initiative
(God is French, and therefore rational);

in Britain is permitted,
even encouraged - so long as
the rules are obeyed
(God is an Englishman, his rules are fair);

in Ireland is celebrated throughout
the culture, but only
for 'harmless eccentricity'
(God is a Catholic and far away);

in the USA is apotheosized
within the culture whose only morality
is aspiration, the gangster-culture
which inevitably
crushed the ideal republic,
the dissenting, dissident republic of ideals.
God is an American - the Original,
with the right to bear arms,
an Individual.
