Change America

Our government is currently full of lies

Politicians answer questions with bullshit cries

American soldiers die their bodies next to dead Middle Eastern boys lie

From a distance you can here there mothers cry

 

“He’s a patriot! A hero!” they say

His plane shot down after dropping a few bombs on civilians today

To what has this nation come?

No I will not see the one percent turn this country into a slum

 

Watch out their coming for healthcare

Non-other than these crooked politicians would dare

Taking it away because we have no money to spare

Meanwhile our tax dollars fund war crimes and warfare

 

This money should be used to help the unemployed

Putting the money into businesses that get American people employed

Unfortunately we’re focusing our resources on oil

And the Middle East has begun to boil

 

Racism might be on a new low

But racist thoughts still flow

Yes, it’s still alive

And if we’re not careful it will revive

 

This country was built on change

This makes reviving coal mining jobs strange

To preserve Earth we need new clean energy

Executed with the help of scientist to do it cleverly

 

It’s worth mentioning our continuing education percentage is at 35!

Many developed countries make our education look like it took a nose dive

These people don’t care if we actually learn or do our best

All that matters is the next test

 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My country
Our world
