America Cries - Poem by Edwina Reizer

America cries.
Her economy dies.
Killed by people you can't trust.
America cries as we bite the dust.

America cries. Now come the whys.
No one could see it?
You've got to be kidding.
America cries as the Neros were fiddling.

The capitalist system is so out of hand.
The capitalists have taken over our land.
What's left for us?
Not much you see
except more taxes for you and for me.
Lending and spending, spending and lending,
the crying and weeping will be never-ending.

America cries and says its goodbyes
to times of financial prosperity.
The financial sting that's played like a game
stock market crashes?
foreclosures to blame?
No. America you played into the hands.
They've dumbed us down so no one understands.

America cries. Where were the wise?
They left long ago and will not return.
America cries for she refuses to learn.
