The Irony of American History

A friend said to me,

“American history is a work
Of fiction. The truth is too
Ugly to be revealed.” but,

That’s more reason to know
The truth, if for nothing else
Than to heed the disillusion

Of it all. it is our time
To be the judge and the jury
And free our faculties

From the hypocrisy of democracy.
