A SAD DAY IN THE USA

SAD DAY

A SAD DAY IN THE USA

 

The USA went crazy today.

The population is angry

Because of the poverty

And lousy economy

Which the richest people and

The Republicans caused,

Then blamed others

So, the Democrats lost.

 

And here is the saddest

The most heartbreaking part;

Most of the rich folks

Knew it from the start.

They laughed at the effort

Of those that resisted.

“In the end, we will win!”

They consistently insisted.

 

They invested millions

In ads that were lies

And covered up their

Bribes and corruption ties.

They took advantage

Of a stupid population

To create an even

Stupider nation.

 

Now they promise to reverse

All the efforts made

To help starving people

And all attempts to upgrade

The disastrous mistakes

They made years ago.

I fear a worse future

Than we can even know.

 

These people are for

The rich and the rapacious.

They open their mouths

And their words are salacious.

But the pretend they are all

A bunch of patriots

And those that believe

Are no better than idiots.
