"next to of course god america i

love you land of the pilgrims' and so forth oh

say can you see by the dawn's early my

country tis of centuries come and go

and are no more what of it we should worry

in every language even deafanddumb

thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry

by jingo by gee by gosh by gum

why talk of beauty what could be more beaut-

iful than these heroic happy dead

who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter

they did not stop to think they died instead

then shall the voice of liberty be mute?"He spoke.And drank rapidly a glass of water

\'next to of course god america i\' is the poet attacking America patriots values. It\'s the order that one should regard the most important (1. religion, 2. country, 3. individual) so America is only second to God. Yeah, the titles messed up it was supposed to be. The lack of grammer and punctuation ect. shows how willingly people will die for something that is sensless. Guillable.

i hate it that none of the websites show how the poet shows the conflict or the attitude to the conflict in the poem

next to of course america i- the title shows what a pointless and stupid poem it is.

first commenter doesn't get it. cummings isnt trying to show patriotism and pride. look at how little sense the speech at the beginning makes! he is saying those who spout off about patriotism are in the wrong, don't understand, cummings is a pacifist and disgusted by how the politicians and orators of his country talk up the war. cummings uses irony: he can see that the voice of liberty /is/ mute.

this poem is a satire on both the cliche spouting patriotism and the gullibility of audiences, it coments on the cliches mouthed by politicians during election time

I like how many people misinterpret this poem. I have had many people read it and some of them have even commented on the patriotism of e Cummings. This poem brilliantly combines [at the beginning] a sense of patriotism and pride but [at the end] shows us how foolish we are for ignoring the down side of war. Patriotism isn't all it is cracked up to be.
