 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

What is happening in America?
I hear the world cry out….
Bodies lined up in the street
Of this there is no doubt…
Dividing more communities
Which racist laws enforce
Bringing out the hate in man
Then let it run it’s course.
What is happening in America?
With a White-house filled with fools
Declaring war on all who scream
“murder is not cool”…
Where is this light of freedom?
That used to shine so bright
… now nothing more than memories
As the light turns into night.
What has happened to America?
Now the haters have their way
Spitting out their hate filled venom
As if they have something good to say?
Destroying all that went before
As though only they exist
What has happened to America?
The America… we all miss.
