Activist Poems Part VIII

Hey everyone! Check out this poem by Walt Whitman! It is so Walt Whitman, with the idealistic views and repetition. It is interesting that this nation already had so many problems even at the time when it was written. This nation does base itself on manufacturing, skyscrapers, and wealth, so I think his vision is even idealistic by today’s standards. It’s interesting that he promotes so much independence. Hope you like it!
