An effort that is insanely worthless and uneasy - a poem.
|Encumbered by socialist
And Marxist views,
The nation seeks a gallant
And gifted resolve;
Saints ruffled and riled
By an obligatory drama.
As ranches and farmland
By a bustling wilderness.
Sheer megalomania and disturbance;
The challenge becomes
An indoctrination of latitudes -
A nation aggrieved by the lunacy -
Second- and third-world
Traffickers besieging our towns...
An ideology so fraught with terror
That the planet must engage
In these wholesale considerations:
Togetherness in dissolution,
And an imperiled surmise.
Ratcheting up outrage
For these asinine thrills.
As thousands of tattered children
Sit huddled in abusive, vile conditions -
A gruesome and horrifying turn
Requiring decisive intervention.
