Land of the Free Nation Under God

by Miss N. Scribe

many men get the chance to battle it out
one will win
one will get to determine how I live
how you live
how we all live
make decisions for us
that will change out lives...forever of the free?
people die every day
to serve, to protect
this great place
what makes this place better than the next
are all the things we fight for
really worth dying for?
.... home of the brave?
respect, power and money
seems to be what we're about
let's not forget the lies,
cheating and backstabbing...
God bless America
but we cant talk about him
we can't call him by his true name
we can't pray together
but oh yeah, nation under God?
the great melting pot
but who did all the cooking?
discovered a land that was already owned
called it your own
seeds planted by slaves
and watered by the trail of tears
still seem to be living separate but equal lives
guilt walks the streets 
while  innocence sits  in cells
liberty and justice...
