Lost 2010


By: Wayne Brown

The Star Spangle Banner plays

The President, his hands hang limp

Does he not feel the pride,

Does he not swell inside?

Where is our patriot?


The Memorials come and go

The President, he plays golf

Does he not feel remembrance

Does he not sense the grief?

Where is our leader?


The illegal immigrants cross the border come

The President, he stands with Mexico

Does he not feel our urgency,

Does he not see the harm?

Where is our protector?


The money flows and debt only builds

The President, he says we must spend

Does he not see the threat,

Does he not see the yoke?

Where is our brilliance?


The black oil flows from deep down the sea

The President, he takes charge in jest

Does he not see the urgency,

Does he not see the death?

Where is our duty?


Our country steps away from the cause of liberty

The President, He says we must change

Does he not see the vision,

Does he not see the damage?

Where is our liberty?

Well done Wayne. We have president who, in my opinion, does not love our country because it is not his country. His loyalties lie elsewhere.

I'm staying out of this fray, because I just give up on it all now. 2012, this fall, next fall, nothing will change. Bah! Gowderdown!
