    legislation is getting lawless determining our destination
    in haste
    we spend millions on education or would waste make more sense??
    taxpayers' taste sours at this bitter expense
    while goals come short of expecation/ ignorant in knowing that home is God's ground for building life and recreation
    woven
    in the "life liberty pursuit.." notion... but what good are these clear objects having cloudy prospects as these current finance
    and military projects
    concluding no real progress
    to be jobless is now typical
    further
    broken homes are cyclical /rights not quite civil we treat values like they are political and not spiritual
    life now (in america) is in the oil and not the blood

    we've warped in freedom's coil suffering in this heating star stripe-like foil of choice
    we boil our God-give dominion in this steaming pot of opinion
    setting it out to spoil
    dessecrating the soil with its spill of human toil..

    catching her so(u)le in her own net

    for how can we condemn Andrea Yates and condone abortion??
    and how different is the extortion of the mafia and corporate Enron with shares of greed alike being sold to aggrandize their fortune
    leaving no portion for the honest laborer

    operating covertly

    thinking perversely

    further
    she (america) goes astray
    saying "it's o.k to be gay as long as you're happy judgement aside unless your skin is dark and head is nappy."
    but which one's natural and regenerative with God-like roots producing ordained fruits
    and not prolific aids cases
    we televise with praise the (harm)ony of their faces
    but what son or daughter could they bear to take their places??

    the "sin towers" of her intelligence will collapse due to her negligence of the yet..
    the net she has set will take her by the so(u)les of her feet..yet

    J'hiah...this poem provides deep insight into America's oversight.
    We have said GOD BLESS AMERICA...when we should be repenting as a nation and asking God to FORGIVE America for the sins of the forfathers and the present day government. Truly, we become a confused people when we live contrary to the principles set forth by God Himself. Who better than He, is better for guiding a people and a nation towards ultimate peace. However, He is rejected by the government which stands for the people???

    I deeply thank you for letting me visit the channels of your compassion for the state of your country.
