My aching American ass......feature this !

One more princess slides into the sea of
prostitution while johns have evil fits
The King has called out the trumpeters
but the music plays like the shits

All hail to the commander in chief
a primadona in a suit and tie and sneakers
Holds the basket ball though like a winner
in front of giant speakers

While Appalachian children starve in a warm
bed of coals
And Hollywood dines on the caviar
and passes on this years roles

The whales roll up on our beaches
windmills rust in the winds
The nuclear plant sits idle as
Edward Abbey swears and then grins

The fisherman has emptied the northern
seas and you and I are at fault
Wall street is in charge of the congress
they hold the keys to the vault

Abraham shakes his fit in disgust as
Jesse Jackson publicly lays a wreath
George Washington's rolling in the grave
and chattering his wooden teeth

The kings of San Francisco has lost a bet with
the girls in the inner den
While Detroit files for bankruptcy and taxes
the row houses again

I don't know where America is falling towards
no one seems to care
Moa and Lenin would have smiled in tune
watching all the apathetic stare

Me I'm going to the space station
to live out my remaining time
No telling how much longer we have
as infinity becomes defined

Damned it seems like the end is growing nearer
than there ever was a near
Lets all go down to the white house
Zimmerman's buying all the beer

Please I can't take any more correctness
as the political jesters dance
We could all have saved America
now there's very little chance

Ed... man .. you are the Bomb.. I stand by your side ..with gun drawn ready to repel the intruders from within that have wormed their way into our educational system, our political system.. and are destroying our way of life by dividing us along racial and economic lines.. black and white, rich and poor .

Progressives are Facists .. Yes I said it.!

Woaw

I am touched and all my concerns are laying there, in your words, our voices echo each other

yes, it is going faster and worst each day

Today Castro stood there and said he is no monster, it was consensual, it is high time to change constitution and laws but also media ways, because the scum of the scum gets the lame light, the publicity and often the money while hard working honest good people struggle and are pointed at, paying for all those expanses!

We can change ourselves, our dealings and teach our kids and more how to be better, how to see the truth, how to not participate to that great clown act that is sadly our reality.

I still see a light, I still have my light, I still light up lights and decide I create my own, I do my own, I enjoy and improve my own... and share it.

Love and peace to all

It is sad, but true. The constitution seems to be going away, bit by bit. But people do not seem to notice. Why is that? Are they ignoring it, or do they just not know it?

You wrote it very well.

I pray for peace, and the fact that we will survive.

Voted up my friend

Amen Eddy Bear!!! Boy oh boy, what'd you do; turn on the nightly news? lol... Oh Ed, it's sad... so sad and does anyone care? Yes, you do and I do too! Guess what? My village is about to become a second Detroit, we're going to file bankruptcy or simply dissolve! It's pretty bad when a village has to disappear!

I hear you crying... you need a big hug :D

I'm here for you and I'll scream with ya!

Big huggies!

A sad commentary, but it's not only in the US.

Tell em Ed!! This is so good. I knew you had it in you! America is not as great as it used to be. There's so much we could do for people but we dont, theres so much we could do to make things better but no one puts there foot forward. Those celebs that are sleeping in their silk sheet king sized beds eating cavier and wearing expensive clothes while children are homeless and starving, and our education system is diminishing, that shows you where our values lie, we value entertainment over others well being, over education, everyone trying to make a quick buck to buy unnessecary things, we make our wants our needs, and the end is near, more near than we realize and I dont want to be around when shit goes down, it will be Hell on earth. More so than it already is. We need change, and Obama was not it. He did not help but made things worse I think. we need to stop following these idiotic leaders who dont know up from down walking around with their heads up their asses all day. and start becoming leaders, we are not sheep, we have free will and our minds that need better educating, all that money paid to celebrities a quarter of that, hald of that could go to the places that need it, schools, better policeman, laborer jobs, firemen, the post office, libraries, raise the minimum wage, orpanages, and animal shelters, old folks homes, hospitals, any of these places, some funded by the government even, barely have enough money to get by let alone take care of all the people and animals that come in for help. and if we dont have insurance, omg. The government who is supposed to protect us should pay for all these things, they sit up in their tower all high and mighty with their riches while the rest of us struggle to make a living every day and who pays the government.?... WE DO!
