On Rome and America by Andres Diaz ©2021

What’s so good about the Roman Empire?
They committed acts of genocide
Stole land from Celts, Gauls, Iberians, Iceni
And countless others
What’s so good about America?
When blacks are still without equal rights
Latinos are demonized
First Nation peoples are still being abused
And countless other evil deeds
Both were important in their glory days
But let’s not fall in love
To the point where we ignore or whitewash
Their evil misdeeds.
