All pictures aren't framed


The picture wasn't even painted
no one could see it visiually
yet most knew it was tainted
It hung over a whole nation
had no frame in relation
Home of the brave
keeper of the slave
Two party political
very hypocritical

One ruling president
might as well not be a resident
Big business ruling the white house
large rat not a mouse
The Washington DC hobbyist
collecting big bucks from the lobbyist

Country suppose to be free
but don't pay your tax fee
the IRS man you'll see
Most of your property you'll have to sell
or say hello to the warden in jail
The picture is a dart board for all
One day it will hang in the Roman
art gallery when it finally fall

I sadly believe that you are right, my friend. Once glorious ancient Rome fell, too.

Very well put. You know if you look up the meaning of democracy in any dictionary you will find we hare not a democratic government. We are a Republic. Our vote would mean more because there would be no delegates and super delegates. Begs one to ask, "Why do we bother to vote anyway?
God Bless,
