I feel so grieved and disheartened,
As I see how far America has strayed
From the nation we once were—
Our narcissistic leader seeks to enhance his power,
Betraying the public trust repeatedly,
As he points a blaming finger at others,
Repeatedly condemning them for his failures.
As I watch him abandon candor and forthrightness,
I long for the honorable leaders we once produced—
Men and women who did what was right,
Regardless of personal consequences;
Whether or not it was in his or her best interest.We have elected a spineless man—
An empty suit who refers to himself as “Eye Candy.”
He has appointed regulators who look good but are not—
Czars with impressive resumes who lack character—
Men and women who speak mellifluously of noble things,
While camouflaging their self-serving ways,
With layer upon layer of greed and deception.
Their words tickle the ears of the ignorant and uninformed,
Which has come to typify more Americans than not.
As modern day Sophists, these unelected miscreants
Regulate our lives, mandating wrong while calling it right,
As they repudiate what is right, honorable, and noble,
Castigating it contemptuously as being politically incorrect.
Willfully and consistently they mislead us,
While some among us benefit from their duplicity.
Licking their lips greedily, these scoundrels reap
Ill-gotten gains at the expense of the innocent citizenry,
Increasing our debt, as another piece
Of our cherished nation is destroyed by their mischief.
Lord, spare us from the calamity that is about to befall.
If we bow our knee and humble ourselves before you,
Will You restore us to what we once were?
If You do, it will allow others to see that
You still have a purpose for us—
For the land of the free and the home of the brave.
