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!
