I love our Country, but I can see
it’s not a true democracy.
The party here that sets the rule
is either the Elephant or the Mule,
but both have to answer in the end
to the powers that do set the trend.
No matter what, they have to dance
to the powerful tune of high finance
and they certainly would not dare
to fight capitalistic “laissez faire”.
It’s sad to say, but it’s the case
that big business puts them in their place.
So that will influence their vote
and they’ll avoid to rock the boat.
Another player in the action
is the powerful religious faction.
They do not want to see a diction
that is not based on mythical fiction.
What they believe in is the right
to oppose clear reason in their fight.
They want a chance to set their sights
on chopping away at the Bill of Rights
and then remove that what they hate,
the separation of Church and State.
Racism is still a problem here
And many people make it clear
in spite that twice he’s been voted in,
they don’t like a leader with a darker skin.
So they fight every decision he makes
no matter how simple are the stakes.
I for one do not like his decision
to use our tax money to favor religion.
All citizens for their property do pay,
while religious ownership still gets away.
Praying at government meetings is not right.
What God do they pray to without causing a fight?
There are thousands of religions on this planet.
So which one is your favorite tenet?
Let science and good sense lead the way
And go to a church if you want to pray.
I hope that we all will realize
that to reason is not dumb but wise
and that if we want to set the pace
to do what’s right for the human race,
we’ll have to change our course of action
and get a different type of election
where one with no church affiliations
and does not depend on huge donations
can be elected and lead our land
into a future that’s really grand.
At the age I am, when time flies by,
I won’t see this happen, but I can dream, can I?
