THE EAGLE STRUGGLES BUT WILL SURVIVE

In this tumultuous political climate I find both parties irrelevant and obsolete They do not speak to me or my families’ needs Neither do they consider our suffering Day after day immigrants look for respite from expulsion from the country, Of unreasonable higher food costs and inequity of daily life Their arguments for immigration expulsion aren't compelling and not in the best interest of the America we want to be And what evil demon thought it was a good idea to separate families and put their children in cages; Nazis did that to Jewish families I cannot drink the Kool-Aid this Caucasoid serves in fake golden goblets I cannot and never would We, the people, are in mental turmoil confused by the crises he foments This country is in chaos and his inability to empathize hurts the nation He's waiting for Putin to give him the go-ahead on his Trump Tower he hopes to build in the middle of Red Square in front of the Kremlin He speaks in tongues foreign to the human heart and spirit His arrogance has dragged our national integrity through the muck The Constitution is clear and doesn’t need to be re-interpreted The Bill of Rights do not have to be changed, just followed Our country is in serious social flux, in hazardous danger Our Constitution and Bill of Rights are in danger of becoming irrelevant This administration has destroyed our national veracity Forgetting the basic thread that ties us all something he has never known Humanity! The welfare of people is what life and this nation is about with integrity at its root, the societal heart beats stronger Our life is not a valuable Royal Delft Blue Vase filled with fragrant gardenias we bleed daily for family, neighbor and country; if not we should We are not part of his elite extravagant life style, but We do share the last bastion of what Democracy promises and what this Republic is laboring to attain in this calloused inhuman political atmosphere, the privileged never stop trying to take our liberties away Being vigilant is not to have us relax but be smart and alert Grifters, shysters seek positions in government to enhance their wealth People should know America's Freedom is for everyone and not only for the Caucasian elites The Eagle of Freedom forever struggling will rise from this abyss Count on it We are made of sterner stuff
