America, once a country so very proud
has now to become a faceless crowd
As the Hood's paperboy out loud shouts
read all about it, plotting and planning
all along in changing his routes.
The Great Deliverer, pulls the shroud
over our nation, where once men bowed
As channels tout, fresh graves ploughed
whining and to harang, loudest endowed
a pledge once in honesty was vowed.
Now a branch of the tree appears as dead
While all great promises all but have fled
As the congressman pleads and then to cower
Amidst the vast array of his constituents
Where the compliments are sure to shower.
This once grand place where brave have bled
Following the plan that the Fathers once led
Policemen all stand where terrorist do plan
Masses all protest and do not understand
Nothing more then but a new word to brand.
All to be communist, the throngs all to signify
We've all been wronged, is the labelled cry
Let's just kick them out, the anarchist traitors
As the groups are led by exaggerated inflaters
While a few level heads accost the debaters.
Was one war to precede, a massive one to follow
Such a great unrest a man cannot swallow
We do not deserve it a gentle soul cajoles
As huge trucks embark armoured tanks roll
A dark day on the horizon, a time so cold.
A day of peace, now so soon appears
Amidst the parades, crowds and the cheers
Was a time of change to make things right
Now leaving behind the turmoil, the fight
Ideas all rearranged, as all sleep in the night.
A quest once sought, now soon to begin
As history to repeat itself, all over again
Steps once were taken, now all forsaken
While now comes the peace, votes are cast
Perhaps to escape the madness at last.
To be the plight of us, all of the humankind
to walk this road and of its challenging design
The histories of our forefathers all to remind.
a positive pathway, in no self-pity to wallow
Every good step we take another to follow
