Living Suicide American Dream
Struggling from true grit tears within scraped down knees
The iron will, within deep depression hole to never giving up
In being worn dread threads in Katrina economic doldrums
That reigns Reagan to Obama White Collar Politician acid scars.
Red, White, and Blue Collar lost Middle Class American Dream
Great Depression in their Subprime destruction bankruptcy,
Twisted torn God Bless Made in saving only America’s Country Club,
While the Grand Canyon crevasse chasm grows the utter poverty.
Oh, graven America being entombed inside homes invisible prisons.
Senior Citizen Obama Social Security wages frozen in place cold blues.
Politician and CEO fraternity raises and Wall St bonus corrupt lavish luxury
Madoff religious lifestyle “We the people” infidelity Mission Accomplished.
Pensions bankrupt from within CEO rapes of greed in employee future despair,
Keogh programs being drained by CEO compensation, given gold to themselves
As Robber Baron Robin Hoods stealing from the needy stockholder children futures
They are the inbred outsourcing of futility in leaving the living suicide scream dream.
Hear its echo wail pain inside the soul,
In its living wake bearing nightmare prayers.
