America The Great

Wed, 04/26/2017 - 23:08 -- Mcyd99

America the Great,

At least in theory.

America the Great,

Why are we so dreary?

 

America the Great,

Unemployment, welfare.

America the Great,

No politician could truly care.

 

America the Great,

What am I supposed to do?

America the Great,

When the debt falls on me and you?

 

America the Great,

We knew it from the start.

America the Great,

That greatness is finally falling apart.
