You get a Four Years Government Demo, with the right to return it but with no refund if they screwed your life.
It is a short way to hell, if it's there where you want to go.
The alternative is only worse.

To provide for the family
John Doe thought he had a job
but greedy industry captains
one day they prove him wrong,
‘cause they closed the factory
and set cheap shop in Mexico.

So, to provide to his family
in computers he went to work,
but as he cost they too much
to India they send his job,
if help is what you wanted
don’t go asking for no John Doe.

Generations of men had went
building cars like Buick and Fords,
and then came humble Japanese
with a smile and bowing down,
to sell the cars to Americans that…
go no driving American anymore.

Cotton fields and Mills are empty
we don’t make textiles here no more,
the Chinese exports what we needed
and we pay with green backs though
no one seems to hold for longer
than a few weeks a measly job.

To sell all their surplus gun’s production
and increase the dearest shares worth,
they always are stirring a lot of trouble
because to sell…they need a war,
or the shareholders will look around,
dump their shares, and to others go.

The little people has seen another church
being build to worship yet another god,
that expect offering soldiers in sacrifice
on the altar of the all wanted mighty Oil,
to can move all the luxury limousines
carrying to the banks the ill earned gold.

For heavens sake, John Doe, don’t get ill,
because the medicines you can’t afford,
and if it happens that sickness killed you
for your family it will be an onerous cost,
you will be traveling not in a comfy coffin
they will dump you in a hole in the ground.

Hey buddy, be a real good American,
buy American and be a patriot,
and if you find anything made here,
please call me…and let me know
before I go across the border
to provide for my family, like John Doe.

Fantastic write Georg! We have been sold out years ago. Our jobs are going overseas because we have so many rediculous tax laws here. Pretty soon we will work at what is left for jobs and no longer see a paycheck. But hey, it's for your own good, right?

Be safe,

One of the tires on America is flat and the other three are loosing air. You have touched on some of the growing woes of a once great country. Lets hope these problems can be fixed and honor and trust becomes the banner flown again over Washington.

All too sad commentary on the reality of our times.

we'll we've certainly lived up to our reputation of assisting the world, we've outsourced all our jobs! However there is new growth within the "green" sector that is beginning with alternate fuels providing farmers with a cash crop, and construction retrofitting for energy efficiency, as well as the science and tech to bring us into a "greener" future

I like the energy you put into this piece of writing and agree on many points - especially concerning war.

A lot of foreign automakers have factories here in the south. They do recognize the quality and abilities of the American worker over others.

Greed is the bottom line,,,Great wake up call!! Wake up people,,,,

Solid truths in this one, Georg, we sold out to other countries because we're too lazy or too greedy to afford a slice of the American pie!!! We turned our backs while the fatcats gorged themselves and now we have to pay the price. A powerful, thought provoking, yes, even angering write. We did this to ourselves...we've no one else to blame.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I know where you are coming from Brother
Your write is outstanding and well intended
But the fact of the matter is that the american auto makers
and all the other industries here in america, got invaded by greedy unions, that when originated were formed for the benefit, of the almost slave wages and treatment here in our good old U.S of A.
of our labor force, then came union dues and new found pensions for the workers, the monies coming in wsa too over whelming....hench Embezzellments, now the poor working labor forces are back where they started from, in the hole, in the poor house.....corporate greed has taken over.

Getting back to American made auto, they were the worst, before the Japanese offered their well made with pride cars, every time I purchased an American Car, it turned to crap, before my 4 year auto loan was paid for, and try taking it for service in the old days
"Well you have to leave it they Would say", a week later you call to see if your car was ready, and the answer was always the same, "we Haven't got to it Yet", When the Japanese arrived all that bull crap disappeared".
Peace be with you Brother

Makes one realize just how dumb we are, letting corporations, crafty lobbyists, cunning PR specialists, and puppet politicians run this nation for far too long. And it's probably now already far too late to even stop them. They must howl with laughter, each and every day, on the way to the bank.

So much truth in this marvelous poem. Bravo for telling it like it is and how we let it happen.

The FIFTH STROPHE of "America's John Doe's Job":

"To sell all their surplus gun’s production
and increase the dearest shares worth,
they always are stirring a lot of trouble
because to sell…they need a war,
or the shareholders will look around,
dump their shares, and to others go."

Depicts our today's reality and strikes fairness and patriotism.

XVII >>> “The Knight-Errant Of Big Apple”
If mammal man accepts to serve Mammon and Its Five Lords;
If the Game is War at Your door when Peace spoils WAR…
What can a KNIGHT-ERRANT fettered in a man’s castle do?
I am a Tabby Cat snorting to wake up “KITTIES NATIONS!”

We can still say NO to those that serve the INDUSTRIAL WARS' LORDS, and prevent this country from becoming a SLAVEYARD.

"America's John Doe's Job" is an outstanding composition in contents and poetic brilliance.

In admiration,

Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU
