A Nation of Lies


A country for the free, it was supposed to be

To be unique and new, equality to all

With innocence upheld, Lady Justice was blind

New labor laws intact, kept the people alive

 But in this day and age, minorities need help

Lady Justice can see; harmful bias at my race


Influenza is not real

Mainly an excuse for the rich and powerful to

Manifest crime and evade justice while

In my streets innocent people are taken by

Gringos who pack my people like animals into Border Patrol vehicles

Racist politicians that don’t understand the struggle of Latinos

Antagonizing our families who only seek a new life

There’s nothing worse than leaving children

In Foster Homes after deporting their families

Our Country criticizes other nations for the mistreatment of people

Never will we be true, till’ Latinos are treated as equals
