Wake Up, America

Wake up, America!
wake up you silent majority,
you sons and daughters of liberty.
All who bleed red, white and blue
your country needs you!

Wake up, America!
wake up to the revolution
and stand up for the constitution.
Stand against the division and hate
now before it’s too late!

Wake up, America!
Wake up folks hither and yon
and vote till a great victory is won.
Soon it will be your patriotic turn
to quell the fires that burn!

Wake up, America!
Wake up and repulse evermore
the wolves and jackals at your door.
Alas the riotin’ mobs in your town
want to tear America down!

Wake up, America!
Wake up to all the fake news
and be most careful who you choose.
Get aboard and ride the Trump train
back to Washington again!

Wake up, Sleepy Joe!
America is not a racist country
but Godless marxists want it to be.
And yet still in your basement hidin’
you say nothin’, Joe Biden!

Wake up, America!
And now that the votes are in
miraculous ballots keep appearin’.
Now we see Red states right on cue
mysteriously turnin’ Blue!

Wake up, America!
Well it’s up to the courts now 
to seek truth and justice somehow.
Why were poll watchers denied
if they had nothin’ to hide?

Wake up, America!
Joe says it's now time to heal
but first there's an election to steal.
That stench in the air is hypocrisy 
and the death of democracy! 

Wake up, America!
For your country say a prayer
that we wake from this nightmare.
But alas as a wise man once spoke
you can’t wake the woke!

      September 2020

Note: I wrote this back in September so
         I have updated with a further four
         verses added on after the election.

Everyone I know is preparing for civil war, that might be because I live in super conservative Montana though. What happened on election night and on will not, and must not be accepted. Our constitution is crumbling, our people are divided, and socialism is at the door. Well pinned! ~Lili

Glad to see another "woke" person here . There seem not to be very many of them. Congrats on a most worthy POTD win, Keith. Frankly, I like neither party. And I will go so far as to say that China did not act alone in planning the virus for the world. The puppet masters ruling us are calling the shots. So que sera sera. I knew Trump was doomed to lose and even though I do not like him, I do not think he is a racist. The media TRULY ARE LIARS. Fake news is alive and well in the entire world!

Keith congratulations on receiving POTD. It takes courage to call it like you see it. I respect that.

Most opted for a soothing, softie nanny, instead of a bread-winning daddy.

Freedom > equality....Kamala, Madame President by 06/01/2021. Historic political times set on a course toward social revolution. Ready...? Ironic POTD, KT. Take good care.

Hey, Keith. Congrats on POTD. Although I've never voted for a Democrat Presidential candidate in my life, I can't get on the 'Trump train.' Mr. Biden didn't win the election; Mr. Trump lost it with his vituperative attacks on anyone who disagreed in the slightest way with him, and the way he threw staffers under the bus after shoving them the White House revolving door. (I actually urged the GOP to nominate Mike Pence. Oh, well...) At any rate, Trump has no one but himself to blame for losing an election he should have won. Have a nice ride, my friend. Cheers, Gershon

Inspired choice for POTD. Well written, well reasoned, well observed and well rewarded political punditry. Huh, so this is what truth looks like. A seven, a fave. Hugs!

Keith, America woke up in record numbers and derailed that train...though the electoral system needs changing completely in this country and we need more parties to make it a true representational democracy...winner takes all negates all the other voices...Biden is the most right of the left and moderation is what's needed these days after 4 years of extreme :)

Keith, Please, don't wake us up please . . . we are schlepping! Oh what beautiful climatic dreams and you come along and interruptus. Hope all is well!

Yes amen, Lord remove spiritual blindness. I don't see how people can call Trump a racist, and support a man whose agenda follows killing the unborn. Which the majority of babies aborted are black. I find this extremely hypocritical. Nice poem. Thanksgiving blessings! (- : B.J
