The Clock is Ticking
What a sad state of affairs
Seems that no one in Washington cares
The politicians know that they stink to high hell
Yet they continue to do nothing to lessen the smell
What happened to compromise as a possible solution?
What happened to “country first” as the proper resolution?
It would seem that those we elected to serve
Put their individual party needs as those that deserve
The next election is all they give a hoot about
And they are deaf to the protests no matter how loud we shout
But with the streets full of those taking exception
The ground swell of protest takes on a new powerful direction
Deaf dumb and blind the politicians may be today
But the time is coming when they won’t have their way
What they are doing to this country is a crime and that is a fact
For destroying it from within is a treacherous act
The choice is ours and we must take charge of our fate
Act know, speak out before it’s too late.
