The Eagle Gives Chase

A common vulture shows it's greedy face
and that's what our culture must soon erase.
My countrymen, I spy, with quickened pace,
the eagle gives chase, the eagle gives chase.

I don't agree with the socialist thrust -
the government's not the God that I trust.
Morals and values hide under thick dust.
Hold leaders accountable - a must.

Our Constitution is all but ignored,
and we have all heard the high court's word.
We need a change and that word's underscored -
Wake up a sleeping Congress, get on board. 

Pay attention like soldiers now deployed
to guard our great nation from being destroyed.
Join her defense, keep our nation employed.
The eagle's not void, the eagle's not void.


slamming the liberal judges,  expansive social welfare programs,  and 
the long term goal of government guaranteed universal medical care rights (that's the vulture)

    thanks for the comment and congrads. As a teacher, the salary differential was not an issue...it was years of experience and education.

    you make me want to cry, because I sorely need health insurance and my hubbie does not qualify in Utah. well, we could get it for 1,200 dollars the two of us (but that's 1/3 of our combined income when we both are working!) and right now my hubbie is unemployed. I do not like either candidate. I feel very hopeless about the future. anyway, it's nice to see people are liking the Mormon candidate. I'm Mormon and I don't even like the guy very much!

    We are in sad state of affairs in our nation. The deficit is the biggest reason I'm voting for Romney, we have to get out from under that and I think he can help. The AFA push for government-funded abortions/contraception is against my moral code.Thanks for the interaction on the poem, I'm sorry it made you want to cry.
