State of the Union

A view of Americana

Empathy and Sympathy
Gone for more than twenty years
Reared up five-plus ago
Brought many tears

Cult of personality
Swooped right in
Abject neglect
Allowed millions to perfectly sin

Hypocrisy is strong everywhere
Shame willfully used
For first-world crimes
People are shocked
Billions of times

Empowered by dopamine
From little glass spines
Swiping left, right, up, and down
They cry from glass…




No Matter What People Tell You, Words And Ideas Can Change The World.
