America the Pitiful

(A ditty sung to the tune, of course, of America the Beautiful)

Oh, pitiful for ignorance
For endless waves of doubts
For purple anger’s truculence
And foolish people’s shouts
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee,
And stop the dumb lest we succumb
From sea to shining sea.
