For our children's sake we need REAL CHANGE.
Oh Ohio My Birth State
Ohio poet transplanted onto Alabama soil
Conservatives here demanding clipped wings.
Banning into Bush World Free Speech verse
Corporate Washington merged government
Where all Citizens become this second class
Where Royals rule US as their employees.
Our Constitution of “We the people” rights,
Own this nation in our patriotic stands.
Declare your Declaration of Independence
To “The Machine” Fraternities of tyranny,
Who invade OUR White House in secrecy
Redefining the core principles “At Will.”
Oh Akron, remember way before NAFTA abuse,
When busting economies created such hope.
Middle Class families giving children dreams
Until a Corporate Conservative demon appeared.
Said worker must be non-union slave puppets
Moving South, where worker Poetry is banned.
Oh Washington Conservative puppet master
Selling American assets, our dreams overseas,
Hurricane lands being bulldozed for Condos.
What is this Corporate Fashion Machine Show?
That must be forced down, into street level debates.
Still the PARTY weeds out the Liberator patriots.
High society members of Country Club corruption
Building bridges to nowhere but pork project graft
While Public Schools become segregated slums
“Made in America” in lost political homework
Did not “We the people” send you to protect US.
Like sex, it seems some do not know about war!
Oh shame, political families recycling tyranny
Executive privilege in being above the law.
Denying humanity due process ‘n habeas corpus
Bush Ambassadors in Clinton future assignment.
Sorry Hillary, we must do better in “True Change”
Status quo Washington must meet its patriot makers.
Conservatism of hate having Corporate owners,
Who mold America with this political religion,
Where profit compassion overrules a human one.
Idolatry of false Gods in Golden fashioned idols,
Who only care for their own self-gratification
Having forgotten roots of this lands - founding fathers.
Oh Ohio, this Ben Franklin look alike son
Searches the words of “God Bless America”
Where “We the people” voters hold hands
Reclaiming OUR White House upon a pride
Where our children’s children Heritage lives
On a proud History of a nation blessed special
With a Constitution of Freedom and Democracy
That never again makes anyone a slave worker.
Ohio, the HeArt of America decry Independence
Where “Made In America” come home to roost
Where we our taught our History of Free Speech
Upon the American Artmosphere of love over hate
Reconstructing the core foundation in being American,
Never a slave to Royal totalitarian tyranny.
David L. Young 03/03/08 Can be copied upon the winds of time.
De-Terminated poet, somewhere in America not on company time

|Oh, Ohio - land of my birth - you stand on the precipice for change - don't blow it! When I was growing up, people cared - they were neighbors and friends - you could leave the house and car unlocked - didn't worry about crime - shame, how far we've come - forgetting history - those that forget it are condemned to repeat it - well penned, David.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

|I am a transplated Texan who was born in Ohio. The moral fabric I learned in my Midwestern childhood home is so different than that I have seen in my travels around the country. I guess it proves that we never realize how well we have it until we look back and recollect.
Have a great day,
