The American Dream

Rating: 5.0


I once took an oath to defend my country
Against enemies domestic and foreign
That oath must have been politically incorrect
Now, they just let our enemies pour in

I remember the term 'In God We Trust'
They want to take that away
He is already shunned from our 'Pledge Of Allegiance'
What would our dead ancestors say

Average Americans can not afford to live
With increasing taxes each year
With fuel, electric and rents on the rise
Average 'Joe's' living is meager

Slowly, we appear to be losing our rights
As Government keeps whittling away
No guns, no speech, as 'Big Brother' watches
What would our dead veterans say

Yes, I took an oath to defend my country
A veteran with pen in hand
Now, I defend, by writing these words
Again, I am taking a stand

Wake up America, time is near
You will lose it all by Government scheme
The American dream is suddenly becoming
Only a dream
