My tears fall for a Country
I no longer recognize.
America has been brought down
to its knees by greed and corruption.
It’s ideals and values plundered
By people who no longer care,
About the average person who
Works to keep his family alive.
Powerful men want to rape and destroy
The loveliest of Nature’s treasures.
They intend to bring down the institutions
That keep our Nation running smoothly,
And that protect the weak, the old,
The poor, and those who are disabled.
These men have lost their way,
And they have betrayed the very people
Who have placed them in power.
They laugh and make plans
To take from the very poor
Needed resources and
They hand them to the rich.
They pollute our clean rivers,
Dirty the air we breathe, and
Steal land from the Native Americans.
They say with arrogance and greed,
“Let’s make America great again.”
They ridicule those who are different,
Poke fun at the handicapped,
Verbally abuse the poor and the weak,
Take money from the elderly,
Take away school lunches from
And call themselves “Christians,
Convinced they are doing the will of God.
They treat minorities with little respect,
Shut out families fleeing from war,
Lie continually to the people they serve,
Create chaos and insecurity for people
They are suppose to keep safe,
And they rule with arrogance and power.
They steal and cheat from
Are filled with hatred towards those
Who disagree with their ideas,
And make war on the less fortunate.
My heart bleeds for a Country
That has lost its moral compass
In the name of religion.
