The silence of forever in eternity Speaks loudly to me And should to all who draw breath Time is too short for lies Too short for entreaties Too short for life Playtime is over Lies spoken pounce on our minds like famished tigers; his untruths blow us away like puffs of dandy lion fluff His lies will eventually die devoured by critical thought The indomitable American Spirit will survive this onslaught of falsehoods Lies will not destroy this great country nor will the clamor of unbridled and misguided emotional zeal We are too strong to fall for fake signs of golden glitter My pained heart asks me, “Where do you think we're headed?” “To hell if we don’t change our ways!” annoyed, I yell. Heaven or hell, hell or heaven? Does it matter? The all too invisible wealthy are in control and the benevolent Gods are nowhere to be seen God is everywhere, but not in the hearts of the rich soon, if we're not careful and vigilant, we may be consumed by the arrogant, self-interest and bigoted shortsighted actions of bad people in government if we're silent
