The American Way

A grim look at the reality of where our nation stands as a confused country today.

An Undivided Nation Tormented by War, Greed, Taxes & Abuse

Our nation’s crisis level has caused so much confusion
The outlook for future generations
Taxes, poverty and unemployment the conclusion
Many years of a countries total abuse
So many issues, too many untruths
Paper money and coins will be of no use
Many go hungry from day to day
Down hearted and full of frustration
That this is the American way
A country plagued by high prices, war and greed
Helping so many other countries out of the red
In times of unethical activity, catastrophe and need
The bleeding must stop, we must ease the fear
And deal with our own emergencies at hand
Liberty and the pursuit of happiness must be made clear
Mr. President we are losing our faith in you
A lack of answers and an unclear picture endures
And consistently hovers over the red, white and blue
As other countries deceive, torment and plot
We must stand firmly united with a master plan
As one strong undivided nation under God

Well said. It's a confusion we have going here in the USA (and most everywhere else) for sure.

"Keep on Rocking in the Free World!!"
Nice take on an old refrain.
