I See America Crying - Poem by Nick Smith

I see America crying
time and time again

Aside from the sin we commend
letting our government lie and get by

Watching our kids die with no remmorse so
thus you hear the chorus of America crying

I see leaves of green change as does a
season but we humans do not see a reason
to do the same

Instead of our males taking care of kids they just
want to kick some game to some chick who's not even
worth it

Teens direspecting and neglecting their elders not seeing that they're the one that took care of America before they were even
eligble to live

But all we can do is shake our heads, say 'that's a shame' and pray
Maybe one day I will see America change.
