God Bless America...?

I know this poem is a day late, as yesterday was July 4th, but still...I had to write this. And I'm an American myself, so I can say these things. ;)
The italicized text is part of the song "God Bless America," by Irvin Berlin.

God Bless America...?

God Bless America, 
Land that I love. 
Stand beside her, and guide her 
Thru the night with a light from above. 
From the mountains, to the prairies, 
To the oceans, white with foam 
God bless America, My home sweet home.

God bless America
Land of prosperity
Generosity and love
Uniqueness and rarity

God bless America
Haven of hope
Blessed with riches
Let the flag be flown!

God bless America
With many graces
And while He's at it
Let's stuff our faces!

God bless America
For we wouldn't want
To be poor like them
Their bodies, gaunt!

God bless America
Saturated pockets
If a country's poor
Then we'll mock it

God bless America
Who graciously affords
A penny of every dollar
To feed the poor.

God bless America
Turn a blind eye
To the destitute
Even as they die

God bless America
Satisfy our greed
By granting us new TVs
And other things we need

God bless America
What riches He gave
To the land of the free
And the home of the brave! 

The End
