The Dismantling Of The All-Powerful Land Of Liberty - Poem by Thomas Bo Lee Daves II

You know, they say thou shalt not steal
And thou shalt not kill
But everything that seemed fictional
Has now become real
Send kids overseas
To fix the governments mistake
Guns and bombs exploding
Is how they shall wake
Taking what you can
And looking up to false idols
Giving back broken promises
And livin like supermodels
Changin the words of the Bible
To fit your needs and wants
And destroyin everyone's morals
With you fake publicity stunts
Letting terrorists into our country
Because we're the land of the free
Makin room for illegal immigrants
And havin American residents flee
Everything today is prejudice
And everyone has a certain right
What happened to free speech?
Can I even write this since I'm White?
It all boils down to money
And who is the greater power
But is it really going to matter
When you're down to your final hour?
So keep rewriting the Constitution
And coming up with more laws
To the thieves that are in control
You all deserve an applause
