THE NEW AWAKENING
When nighttime comes
I long for a kiss
from my partner’s sweet sucking lips
to make me forget the craziness around me
When I wake up at nighttime
I want to eat fried chicken
to quell my upset spirit
and calm my anger
I don’t know why conservative politicians who have so much are so unhappy
They deny families food stamps and safe shelter for the homeless.
Right-wing politicians must not have a warm heart that beats human.
Do they understand what their malevolent laws do to people?
They hurt the lives of the fast dwindling American middle class
but with gorged bellies they expand their bank accounts
they know this is not the way to represent Americans honestly
they ignore the neediest and shower opulence to the wealthy
Greed is at the politician's core;
always wanting more.
Americans work hard to provide for their families
But politicians are deficient in caring for the working American
We, the well-fed American voter should be more compassionate
We are not a young country anymore, we have no more excuses
it’s time we matured and shared the resources
The starving world demands it
Worldwide, can there only be plenty for the wealthy
but deprivation wages for the poor?
It has nothing to do with who works hardest or is the wiser investor
it's about politicians thinking of the people who pay for their sustenance
controlling their avarice and sharing life's resources equally
stop wasting our nation's treasure and the world's resources
Above all cease creating wars and killing people in our name
understand that Time does not stand still,
it moves on with or without us and those in power
remember history does not look kindly on corrupt officials
Politicians who disregard their own people's welfare
and chose their own greed above all else,
are led by a corrupt, obsequious Senate leader,
a narcissistic, misogynistic,misanthropic criminal president
and emperor wanna-be, have no place in American politics
Americans say not no, but hell no!
