Back to the Basics Poem by Bryan Pegram

Turmoil is minimizing the position we are really in,
It’s like our leaders are making it to where it’s impossible to win.
They sit there in their position with a concealed grin.
As though the actions they make are sealed within.
But, lies protrude because facts are real,
They expose the lies that they try to conceal.
They cover it up with media control,
Brainwashing the people is the ultimate goal.
To have them eating out of the palms of their hands,
Till what they say are complete demands.
An enduring freedom will no longer stand,
They are breaking it apart, strand by strand.
What you read is not what’s planned,
It’s a brainwashing scheme to take over the land.
As though our founding fathers had it wrong,
Now, they just want us to play along.
Democracy is gone from the foundation built,
And they can look straight in your eyes without an ounce of guilt.
These are the people in charge of this nation,
This is the truth in total translation.
So if you don’t want to head towards total castration,
We need to go back to our original foundation.
