MY GRANDFATHER ONCE SAID

THIS WORLD WE SHARE

More Poetry >>

Don't go to war with an unarmed foe
I went against that recently I know
Least it be men armed only with a thesaurus
of big words and mostly made up propaganda
I got caught up in the elections
Many of my friends said the same thing
Neither candidate was my choice
But America obviously needed change
or It would be Spanish speaking and gangs
drugs sold on every street corner legal by the current administration
So give the new President a chance
I appreciated President Obama and his family values
What I did not appreciate was a weakened America
You don't like this how this country is run
Bye!
And treating of illegal immigrants more than our Veterans
Our fireman our Policeman of all races
Take away the stolen guns from gang members
OK, it was a plus they were killing each other
But innocents were caught in the crossfire
Just as they are in the middle east conflicts
I don't need to see poetry promoting Mideast politics
Words and lies from unarmed man  and a thesaurus
Lets stick with American values and Democracy
It has worked for over two hundred years
Why the illegals are coming here in the first place
We do need to send home the discontented home

As my forefathers, speak the language pay the taxes
And not be expected to live on a free ride
