is there anyone awake?
what more does he have to do
before you realise, he is a fake.
How many more lies and untruths
does he have to say
before it dawns on you
he is no Abraham Lincoln or JFK.
Instead he preys on the
weakest in society,
accumulating wealth while his country
spirals towards anarchy.
In New York city unknown souls
are being buried in mass graves
while he sits in the Oval office
defending former owners of slaves.
is this what you have become?
a nation of parasites
who only feel numb,
where human life is treated
as a commodity
and the poorest of the poor
are forced into sodomy.
A land where water is poisoned
and healthcare comes at a premium,
where celebrities who do nothing
are then thought of as awesome.
this is your wake up call,
it’s time to look at yourself and realise
life is not all apple pie and baseball,
that the majority of your citizens
never get close to the American dream
instead they are stuck in a nightmare
that makes them want to scream.
They watch advertisements
featuring people with perfect teeth
enticing them to spend and borrow
until they have nothing to eat.
The greatest country on earth
tries to hide its inadequacies
by pointing the finger
at foreign adversaries.
I hope you wake up with
a brand new attitude
and not end up paying
for your President’s ineptitude.
