Satirical look at the state of our nation.
** Image ID #1938515 Unavailable **


Our country was founded on a great concept
implemented by the blind and inept
who've forgotten original liberty
doesn't now mean "What's in it for me?"

Along the way, it seems, we have strayed off course
reminding us the camel was supposed to be a horse.
The failing wasn't that the end we couldn't see –
the problem was the design was done by committee!
