So Much In This World - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Living in an existence that has no life to speak of,
having nothing, doing without, always wondering what
is to become of us and our children.

Knowing there is so much in this world, more than
enough for every man, woman and child, yet there are
such filthy rich people, stingy, having bloated egos.

Sticking out their chests, saying I earned my money,
but at what expense to others have they done it, always
sleeping in their minds of plenty.

Having more than they can ever use in their lifetimes,
but unwilling to lift a finger to help anyone else,
children going hungry in the United States of America.

Because of corrupt politicians thinking they are entitle-
ed to our money, even though not working for it, never
representing We the People, going against us at every turn.

Never batting an eye over any of it, time to stand up
and demand that we keep every cent we've earned from
now on, doing away with the IRS and social security.

Two ways the government rapes the people, let individuals
save their own money in private accounts untouchable by
politicians and government.

Then we'll have the money we need to live on and then
some, no need for anyone to put their hands on our own
money any more.

For they only waste it on unessential things like war and
giving it away to other countries that do nothing for us
except want to kill all Americans.

To hell with foreign aid, close our borders totally, deport
all illegals no matter where they're from in the world,
start taking care of ourselves and the government be damned.

Convention of states needs to be a reality to get rid of
federal government and politicians always with their hands
out to use our money for greediness.

Feeling themselves more important than the rest of us, be-
cause of their bloated egos and self-importance standing
in the way of their hearts.

    Half of the poem in the logical way of thinking but the other half deviates the borders of human race horizons as a whole.My dear, without the outside world US are nothing.Do not forget that most of the present turbulances in middle east are caused by US political actions, wars and interventions especially under the leadership of the republicans.
    Do not forget it please.
