This is Our Tragedy




US Dominance-World Supremacy
Ignorance has been and will be one precursor
To our own demise—

What happen to our supremacy in the world?
Could it be our greed?
Has our greed finally overtaken our moral conscious mind?
Have we succumb to our worst enemy—

That enemy, socialism
Our ownership in freedom taken over by governmental entities
The tragedy in this is ours alone—

We choose not to react
To lay dormant
Our elected leaders suggest that they are our choices—

However, for us to regain our place
As one of respect and honor
We need to understand our failures
Our oral history recites our failures—

So when we speak of tragedy
We speak of a nation crumbling
A nation imploding from within
This is our tragedy to accept
Our legacy to transfer to our younger generation
          Unless,
                    We unshackle our minds—

Gregory E Upshaw
