    The United States of America
    We are headed straight for destruction
    Spending trillions of dollars a day on war
    When we have hundreds homeless people
    Walking the streets of our nations' capital.
    We can find money to feed the hungry in
    Africa, Thailand and Cambodia
    But we let our people
    STARVE!
    Like mangy dogs in back alley ways
    We send medicine for the
    Sick in other countries
    Yet our elderly can't
    Afford their perscriptions.
    We send money to AIDs
    Patients in Afrifca while
    U.S. citizens struggle
    to live with the virus
    We are so proud of
    Our country because
    We 'help' others
    But doesn't charity begin at home?​
