They claimed that it was destiny, going coast-to-coast
but how can they claim that it’s “ours” when in fact most
of the labor still cannot even engross
a decent-sized commission? And still they toast
to the genocidal mission and a misguided dream
which, to the world over, this all seems
like a sweet deal. It’s quite easy to believe
that if we kneel, we’d easily achieve
a warm meal; we’re living the Great American Scheme.
It’s time to get off our computers and rock
the complacent boat and send a shock-
wave to the folks who forgot
that platform of hope, man this has got
to be a joke, they need to stop
taking our votes this is not
what we’ve been told
in that preamble draft
that those forefathers had crafted;
your fathers not mine, I’m a bastard.
It’s amazing how they’ve plastered
the façade of benevolence
and then deny the evidence
of how they force people into a detritus
state of living, never changing the elements
just perpetuating the condition
so I made a rational decision
by creating a gentle incision.
My intention was to weigh
my chances, “leave the hood” as some would say.
This is why I left the USA.
(feel free to tell me what you think, the ending feels a bit abrupt to me)
