    It's amusing how
    we're color blind for you
    the way we'll fight for you
    enlist and die for you
    wave the flag for you
    take bullets for you
    fly death planes for you
    travel to foreign lands to kill for you
    terrorize this Earth for you
    place our vote for you
    breathe black smoke for you
    leave our families for you
    lie on the stand for you
    forgive after lies from you
    that caused us to lose lives for you
    turn the other cheek for you
    buy into this life for you
    abandon our skin for you
    changes our minds for you
    walk as blind one do
    compromise identity for you
    give up freedom for you
    try to mimic you
    some may envy you
    and the scan-less **** you do
    making all pay tribute to
    the bloody red, white and blue

    I really liked the way you crafted this. Our ancestors have died, and we still do, yet it isn't enough for the old red, white, and blue. A real "head shaker" here.

    loving the rhythm and flow of this piece. . .

    40 plus since the first of the month
    and no one wants to end this stuff
    seems the harder we rage
    the more we fade
    loss of individuality
    to his conformity
    as his thunder reigns
    and we as people suffer and hang
    he's still fighting the fight
    using towers to heighten the plight
    what gives him that right
    it was me who lost the light
    since that day nothing has been the same
    and part of me has him to blame
    on anniversary days he spits same game
    his words of "truth" have gotten lame
    and he knows its all he has and he better cling
    for when my spirit tires my soul sings
    of bitter truths and political cries
    for some of my family in that first tower died
    and people gone I have known for years
    are thought about as I fight the tears
    watch him carefully as he lets others fall
    next time this month he won't be standing tall
    handing down others words through his spoken voice
    the victims of this tragedy
    when is it there choice
    when can they use words like
    nepitism, racist, cheat
    and begin to feel like someone there listens
    and will defeat?
    sometimes i wonder when i listen hard
    how much cocaine did he mix with regards.

    Our fight be against him
    our anger straight to the heart
    if one is indeed present
    in that hollow body
    a shell of a man
    with the title of president
    sickness comes when he speaks
    bacteria laced tongue
    speaking lies leading to death
    Randee, I'm sorry for your loss
    in the Tower high as the sky
    as they fell from his arrogance
    ego sending young ones to early death
    our brothers and sisters out of place
    subtracting numbers from our race
    as if they were still were being hung
    not from trees, but now overseas
    we should make no mistake
    this country is not ours
    and neither are these wars
    and neither should be these scars
    left on hearts being torn apart
    he's making lying a work of art
    that no one cares to buy
    and using death as political fuel
    and passed love ones as his tool
