American Shame


Shame upon us America
we have looked the other way.
Refused to see or hear the truth;
believing what liars say.

Had it been our's left there to die;
then perhaps we may have cared.
Those lost patriots families
painful grief we would have shared.

We just watched our favorite shows
those so-called realities.
Ignoring those few speaking of
Benghazi's atrocities.

Now the truth is coming out for
all America to see.
Will we go watch some more TV
or wage war for Benghazi?
