    As I begin to take a look around
    Hope and disappointment both abound
    Folks are arguing about whether this will work
    Discussing whether Obama's election was a quirk
    I hear the masses hollering my president is black
    Like he is the cure for all that America lacks
    As if America wasn't still going to hell in a paper sack
    Have you taken a look lately at what's on America's back
    Homeless citizens hungry and cold, weak and sick
    Unemployment growing as fast as the clock ticks
    The elders mistreated
    The children molested
    Hospitals to busy to serve the poor
    And generations rotten to the core
    Land where the pilgrim cried
    Land where our fathers died
    Enslaved, tarred and feathered,
    A nation where racism is still featured
    You say land of the free, home of the brave
    But I say why are we still digging our own grave
    Is this really your geniune idea of paradise
    A land in which you are still an object to be despised
    When will you walk out of ignorance and open your eyes
    And truly understand that America is truly nobody's prize

    :welldone: GREAT WORK yeah America is nothing more than that of a modern day Rome, and it's on it's way because it's already been foretold.

    asimplepoet - America has a lot on its back. But it better watch out for us. We've been beaten in America, enslaved in America, hanged, boiled and killed in America. We've had our families broken up in America, denied rights, worked to death and blamed for all that's bad. When all has been done to decimate your identity and your racial heritage and you still mangage to stay alive and kicking, you represent a living force that won't be terminated. So, watch out America ! We're coming and Obama is just the first. You always provoke the thinking asimplepoet. Love this work. Thanks for it. Namyh
