our country

Once Our Great land

A great land filled with crooks and tyrants where shall we go.  My great country once but now taken for everyone not their foes.   Born here and all that I know, Grabbing my kids and on we go.  Looking high and looking low for a place not so greedy and trying to not let the sadness show.  We all line up to vote to elect someone else better, but not realizing the one we gave vote was swinging a fake banner.     They promise a future for then and for now we wake up to realize that is was for their fat cow.  We beg for our share for them to care but they hear us not I’m just glad we have our cot.

self defeat

step now dark direction
Light fades from the sky
Mothers love once prided
Often early die
Weep fathers loud not proud
For morality is out
Stand fast o men in harmony
Our country is of thee
Be one mind the values
That conceived a nation free
Nobility decay
Out of bounds the color gray
Greatest empire slip away
Compromise the day
Right or wrong the dollars’ song
Has liberty lost her way?
