The Path Ahead - A Probable Future for Our Nation
Our country is in so much trouble right now. I think the founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves. Our economy hangs by a thread. Unemployment is rampant. Laws restricting freedoms are springing forth like weeds to choke our garden. Corporate greed and manipulation of the political process has become a plague upon us all. The youth of our nation are loosing the skills of critical thought, problem solving and ingenuity that built this country. The aforementioned is but the tip of the iceberg. I am not sure how to stop the impending crash but I do know this…
We must all, everyone of us, stand now for what we believe in. We must organize. We must be ever diligent and never wavering in our goal of rescue for America. America has been good to me and I suspect many of you… Please, lets save her while we still can.
The Path Ahead
An eagle soars above, alone
looking over a barren wasteland
of post apocalyptic rubble
where once reigned capitalist supremacy,
where the promise of freedom lured,
ignorant and innocent alike
to the economic enslavement,
the materialistic encasement,
the apathetic abasement,
that led to this,
this death of an ideal.
This abomination of what was never real
yet an illusion of mass appeal
where the bodies of children fed fat capitalist,
where pornography out rated piety,
where glitz and glamour obscured hope,
where sin was master over all,
ensuring the righteous would fall
topple from grace in a media fed frenzy
while sipping chemical death though bits of plastic
manufactured by slaves producing trash
to choke the land the birthed dream…
while overhead the eagle screamed.
