Treasure Island

James Lee Watts

(23rd July 1990 / Birmingham)

All Across The Nation


All Across The Nation,
Is Hunger And Starvation.

All Across The Nation,
Is Racism And Discrimination.

All Across The Nation,
Is Poverty And Overpopulation.

Why Don’t We Stop This Pain?
There’s A Lot More We Can Gain.

Why Not Help Each Other?
Instead Of Killing One Another,

Actions Speak Louder Than Words,
So Lets Do Something About It!

    I like the challenge presented.
    The last line although strong didn't match with the rest of the rhyming that you did earlier.

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
