parodying the rhythm of the national anthem, Amanda Gorman shared a new poem in which he questioned America’s independence.

“Hey can we say, from the early flight gone / Did we fail so loud to the past glow of the morning light / Whose flawed edges and swirling spots, from perilous predicament / Our lone hearts, we watched, stir and bravely shout,” he began.

O say, from the early flight gone, Did we fail so loudly In the morning light’s past light, Whose flawed edges and swirling spots, From perilous plight, our lone hearts, We watched, stir and heroically cry. (1/2)

“And the ghastly glint of the rifle, the bullet bursting through the air / Seen the truth that our flag was not saved / O say that scarred banner still save / Our land of the free and home of the brave?” The poem is finished.

(2/2) And the terrible flash of the rifle, The bullets bursting in the air showed The truth that our flag was untouched. Hey say does that stained flag still save our land of the free and the home of the brave?
