Shame of the Fathers

Updated on May 24, 2017

How could they turn their backs,

those the common people elected,

Laughing and to socialize, denying the rights,

as their agendas are preselected?

Pretending to be bothered by it all,

a false hope is so given to the news.

Then it is the bottom line, as if by design,

plays up to the wealthy, to abuse.

Why are we caught in webs of deceit,

spiders by the dozens to spin,

When their main objective then is to fool,

while perpetuating every sin?

The little ones to suffer most, as the rich,

who do only boast, have their way.

Must we just stand by, as we listen to every lie,

be told it's for a brighter new day?

It's time for us all to stand, march hand in hand,

Just show how much our freedom means to us.

Speak out and represent, all that we each have spent,

The time and causes invested, in our God we trust.

Stand up and be counted, each goal surmounted,

Making things so much better when we've tried.

The times are growing short, before we do have to abort,

every earned right we've fought for, and have died.

Together we can make a big difference and a better life,

Won't have to struggle and feel pressures of such strife.

Do what has made this country great, all should to participate,

Regaining our freedom and every right, is to be our fate.

      Poetically you truly speak the truth and the truth is really all we have.

      Well said! If we want to make a difference we need to stand together on issues that affect us.

      Reminds me of the quote, "Stand for something or fall for anything." We really do need to sustain truth with all we've got.
