Our Country Has Lied

You know what you're doing

You know what you've done

Please here my plea

I can't possibly be the only one

Our country has lied

Our men have died

Yet we hear nothing

Except what they say

The media is controlled

I know I'm being bold

But I can't stand around another day

You usher problems in

Like they make our country great

And cover up for them

When they show their true state

You are above the law

Only because of your wealth

If others did what you have done

We would be killed or in jail

We are run on lies and corruption

But the news never tells us the truth of the situation

I know we aren't great

Our problems abound

So fix the problem

Or let the people stand up while everyone else steps down


This poem is about: 
My country
