America, the Brutal

By Leonard Pigg

Oh, beautiful forsaken lives
For amber waves of pain
For purple, bruised and swollen lips
Above all this is shame!
America! America! God has forsaken thee,
Removed the good from neighborhoods
From sea to toxic sea!

Oh, disgraceful to American dreams
Utopia is all but gone
Cities shine amid poison skies
The future is being wept for
America! America! God remove the corrupt
Temper our souls with self-control
Or we are truly fucked
