my peers have forgotten what it is that brings honor
and the right hour
that we were supposed to take over
and turn things around
they are sinking deeper into corruption
they fight for higher positions
so they can steal
and enrich themselves
selling our land to foreigners
i pray unto God
to raise us a nation
that's going to hate corruption
and despise all the acts related to it
we lack vision and confidence
and really ignore
what it is that brings honor.

    VERY insightful, Emmanuel! I like the way you describe politicians as having no sense of honor. This, unfortunately, seems to be true and our only remedy will be to vote all of them out. After watching all this corruption, I may become a Libertarian. The intent of our consitution has been lost. Love, Carolyn
