Shivering in reality of a blanketed nation,
Sweeping homeless away as recycled trash,
Compassion of Washington, so stone cold,
That the statues of Washington rain tears,
Nation, why have you forsaken the poor.
Cuddling hiding among drafty nails,
That claws its fangs into convulsions,
Newspaper mattress on concrete slabs,
Frozen together transferring heated ink,
Newspaper declaring economic recovery.
Jobs outsourcing profits to Indians overseas,
Jobs immigrating to conservative shelters,
Jobs being bought south in taxed abatements,
Jobs of Wal-Mart public health benefits,
Jobs volunteered, helping soup line economics.
American President never walking in poverty,
Segregating time into country club standards,
Republican Party of free trade exploitation,
Merging corporations taking world control,
Dictating employment of slaved compliance.
Lost food stamps hurricane’s truth survival,
Lost War on Poverty New Orleans speech,
Lost generation inner city public schools,
Lost dreams elevating from bulldozed hopes,
Lost White House of Plantation valued past.
Jobs lost by politicians lobbying Congress’s greed,
Fattened wallets of five star traveling lifestyles,
Trashing homeless as worthless monetary beggars.
Politicians begging for wealthy invested bribes.
Washing ton’s laundering money clearing profits,
Condemning poor, lowering standards, defrauding US.
Note: It has become popular with the Republicans to silence criticism by ignoring it or attacking it as Liberal biased media attacks. However, when the concrete accounting starts to show the truth of their green blooded funding, they cry foul, saying we need to clean up the House and Senate, just because they were caught as politicians on the take, then rushing around to give back tainted money to charities. How about if they give money to the poor, who they screwed, or those homeless who really needs America’s help?
