Cracked & Broken Relic

Philadelphia Pennsylvania, historically known as the "City of Brotherly Love." Home to the Liberty Bell. The City where the flag was first designed and made by Betsy Ross.

The City wherein the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were written. Many rights now lost. The Liberty Bell is a cracked and broken relic

Where in, freedom no longer rings. The City of Brotherly Shove is crime ridden. Safety forbidden. Where robbery and the sound of gunshots rule supreme

The birthplace of ameriKKKa. Progenitor of the ameriKKKan dream. Potholes, gunshots and screams. No one seems to care. No one ever awakes from the ameriKKKan nightmare
