My Fellow Americans

06/18/2009

My fellow Americans
Are we not ashamed of ourselves?
Iranians citizens more interested in democracy
Taking to the streets in action
Thwarting complacency
Striving for freedom

My fickle Americans
Are we not ashamed of ourselves?
In economic crisis we are distracted
Madoff and GDP replaced with Swine flu
Baby found in dumpster
there is no crisis

My feral Americans
Are we not ashamed of ourselves?
Combating for democracy, against injustice
Holding foreign nationals without trial
Abu Ghraib and Gitmo on the world stage
What do we fight for?

My fellow Americans
Let us once again be proud
Putting aside bureaucratic filibustering
Philanthropically aiding without recompense
Leading by example, not dictating
Entrepreneurial thought innovating the future
Hard work and high moral ground
Equality and perseverance
America come back to where we lost our way

    Anyone who supports Obama’s doctrine is a disgrace to his/her religion of Christianity, Mulsim, or Jew. Obama supports abortion and homosexuality. Those who do not speak up against this are also guilty of the same sin.

      That’s harsh, but you are entitled to your opinion. Thank you for your comment and for stopping by.
