Hope this poem does not offend anyone. Freedom of Speech is the American way. This is a reality.


Men, women and children will be dying in the ghetto,

If you take away our resources

 Hospitals, Education, Healthcare for the Elderly, Those programs are the core of our community,

Our hold foundation will be shattered, If you take away our government funds

You act as if, it doesn’t matter

That money was helping us to survive

Feeding our community-Keeping our children and Seniors alive

If you cut our budget it will surely hurt us-Our children will suffer the most,

To the people, You made a promise, That you would not betray us,

You advocated in your campaigns

You made a promise,

You would fix the budget,

Save our State from destruction and shame

Tax payers voted, the count is in,

You did win

Now it’s time, for you to begin.

But NO!

You used us, like all the others Politician’s,

Who reigned before you?  You’re just playin a character role,       

  Something that is easy for you to do, Just a part to play
Doin it the Hollywood way, Political figures, they all tell lies,

Lie, Cheat and Steal just to get you on their side,

When they win, well its too late then,

The raft of the new regime, Just walked in, You’re no better than the terrorists,

You’re behavior is no different - Your hurting your own people

But, you feel no remorse,

Cutting this program

Cutting that program,

Maybe you didn’t notice,

The homeless people in the street,

Sleeping in boxes, corners, alleys, anywhere they think is safe,

Sometimes taking up the block, All you see is miles of shopping carts

This is our country, sweet land of Liberty America!

Why is this happening? Save our Children and help our Seniors

They need our love and affection for the end is near.

Yes, our government doesn't care about poor people, whether they are here or on the other side of the world. At least here we don't have genocide wiping out whole populations. Still, it's a tough time in the ghetto. The only difference is that some are still able to rise above it all.
