Living Out Loud

A good portion of the nation is living out loud

involuntarily, because of invasion of privacy,

Inquisitions prompted by religious affliliations

and racial discriminations,

Private living has become obsolete,

obliterated by accusations, and curiosities,

The American Dream no longer holds the 

same meaning for everyone,

Foreigners' lives are plastered on every news edition,

from the products they use, to the foods they eat,

Quiet lives are no longer discreet,

such indignities and inhumane treatments have become

the norm, because spies come in all sizes, shapes and forms,

When will all the mistrust and circumspection end?

Remember, Terrrorists don't lay down roots and pretend to

be friends........,

They are only committed to appearances and ends.
