Main Street USA

Politics consistent 
With moral corruption 
Religion at best 
Breeding dysfunction

Churches pristine
On every corner
While homeless abound
Where is the honor?

The rich at ease 
Out at play 
The poverty stricken 
Know only dismay

The wealthy feast 
Indulge in the finest 
The destitute and poor 
Haven't the slightest

Discordance composed
By greed and deceit
Repression in action 
With every heart beat

Martyrs  seek justice 
Where has she gone? 
Quelled and exiled
She's been overthrown

America, take credit
For invention ingenious
But also acknowledge
The verge of madness

We rightfully know
There is a fine line
Between the two
We just can't deny

It seems we're crossing
Into that dimension
With each passing day
With nil apprehension
