Home of The Crazed, Land of The Freely Bleeding

Listen clear, Listen here, Listen. Hear! Terrible terrorists terrorize our homeland, With nice suits that smell of money they emasculate a grown man, New plan? What Plan!? Only a handful understand, Changing taxes has its limits with no jobs for the common man, Banks are emancipated youths They do what they please, Devouring the penicillin which empowers the disease, More money for the rich No money for the poor, Force the heart of America to beat upon the vault door, Profit is the game's name To the strongest goes the spoil, Foreigners work for mere pennies so jobs belong to foreign soil, Big business is still BIG, and with unjustified fears, CEO's protect their lifestyles blowing their noses with sweat and tears, Of others! Even self proclaimed Christians protect their brothers, Praying to a god nightly for a change within the mother, The mother being certain politicians who swear by virtue of democracy, Which was her maiden name Until she married into mediocrity, All has become a fight for self Self survival and self elation, Locking their doors with full stomachs as tempers flare across a nation, Violence erupting in the streets With few stories making the news, Violent protests from those with less than poor I.Q's The blame game, pointing fingers during this moment of duress, At black duct tape in the white house who brilliantly fought to win a mess, Instead of taking remarks to heart, Instead of following the steps of banks, He has honorably chosen to clean shxt, from the deepest septic tank, Socialites are reaching out Celebrities are reaching out, While government officials save their asses by speaking out, But not too often, Avoid living on the news, News coverage makes them a target for the gunshots and boos, Do we even blame ourselves for meaningless wars the majority supported? Money could have been saved had stupidity been aborted... But hindsight is too ugly and most choose to see the misleading, While America becomes The Home Of The Crazed, and The Land Of The Freely Bleeding...
