America - Poem by Pete O'H

america
the bully of the world
lies to get what it wants
propaganda for the boys and girls

oil
is just like its candy
and it gets what it wants
nobody stands up to the big bully

america
the cool kid on the block
the other kids want him to share
he won't give up anything he's got

ignorance
is all that we're full of
got a leader sending us to war
doing everything uncle adolf would've

    I understand your frustration and your poetry says it very clearly.But I suggest to you the'Uncle Adolf' comment is a little much.I don't think you realize how blessedly far away from that sort of tyranny America is.What 'Uncle Adolf' would have done is collect you and your family.
