American Nightmare

Mon, 03/24/2014 - 22:59 -- Alx57


With the power to change, I would change power.
The people have to struggle while our leaders just cower. 
Few enjoy all the blessings of wealth,
But many work their lives away, causing harm to their health.
Many work hard, barely enough to get by,
but the harder you work the sooner you die.
While celebrities and politicians barely lift a finger,
Billions of dollars go to them just for being famous or a singer.
America, you are becoming the very thing you fought,
Your leaders are becoming corrupt and can easily be bought.
This abuse of power was our Founding Fathers' worst fear,
I see no American Dream just an American Nightmare..
