INTEGRITY IS MISSING IN AMERICA
Once the dream was to make America the shining light of the world
a caring and compassionate country with opportunities for all
but after the fake election America has become the corrupt, the ugly,
the distrusted, the fallen dream of millions.
A neophyte failed businessman/politician with a narcissistic bent
of a five year old, looking for a king's crown
his fatuous transmutation has proven to be the culprit blocking his way
respite is months away or maybe two or eight years away...or maybe never.
We who understand the damage being done know we are the ones
who must remove the stench he has created and the pain he inflicts
hell bent on annihilating the working family, education and the environment,
intent on changing the fair and just American country we have striven to attain.
American's Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the hope of the world
but this administration peddles lies for control, honesty chokes them,
integrity strangles the fake freedoms they profess
their insidious mindset will not prevail and definitely will be challenged.
We are being devoured by manipulative small minds; their indifference,
bigotry and the all-mighty, all-consuming, deceptive cash motive bottom line
seems to be what we are becoming
but are we at heart, really that?
Will Democracy, Truth, Justice continue to be the world's conscience?
Will American integrity survive the current onslaught of verbal inanities?
America was great before this charlatan came unto the scene
misleading his followers and instilling his divisive absurdities
America was great long before the white man stepped on these shores
It will continue to be great, and greater, but these last few years
Caucasians have been fed a line of con derailing that trajectory
yet there are those who will follow their false Messiah's words of hatred;
White supremacists, bigots, genocidal maniacs with the mistaken idea
that this country is for whites only have a shocker awaiting them
America will never be ruled solely by pink-orange colored Caucasians
hellbent on destroying the brown-skin indigenous peoples of the world.
