The Devastation Of A Nation - Poem by Gregory Huyette

A nation valuing its rights more than its obligations.

A nation valuing high class riches more than middle class wealth

A nation valuing politicians more than the people's participation.

A nation valuing the short term with little long term consideration.

A nation valuing the demeaning of truth with false manipulation.

A nation valuing the status quo in spite of devastation.

A nation valuing its children so little that ignores their desperation.

A nation valuing its won self interests regardless of growing consternation.

A nation valuing diversity regardless of the harms of its aberration.

A nation valuing these injustices will disappear from its own perturbation.
