What happened to You
America so beautiful,
once you were harsh wilderness,
tamed by adventurers,
settled by Europe's castoffs and so many others.
Now you have turned into a miasma of
self-absorbed fluff addicts,
peppered by extremists and hate groups.
Once you gave the blood of so many youth
to combat fascism and racism.
Now you grow these evil weeds within your borders.
The quiet majority needs to set down their toys
and shout as one “Enough! We will not stand for this again!”
“We paid a horrible price for this in the 1940's!”
“Too high a price to repeat the mistake.”
Say NO to Nazi fascism, NO to racism, NO to bigotry
America was supposed to be better than this,
is supposed to be better than this,
Can become better than this.
These battles evidently must be fought over and over
by every new generation.
We are all one nation and had better figure out how to get along,
before we tear ourselves apart.
One civil war was enough.
Grow up, USA.
Get over the Fascist and Racist Foolishness and move on!
