A Country Such As This

written by: Beth Tremaglio

"Disease can not cure disease but rather spread its illness" - Beth

 

A country such as this
diseased
morals crumbling
socially decaying from within
nobility lost
wars for profits and natural resources rather than humanity.
Truth has become lie and a lie truth.
Wrong has become right and right has become wrong.
A country such as this can not spread anything apart from its own diseased nature, can not help but to spread its illness and set those in power who will bow to it, worship the giver and burn any who speak contrary
in a country such as this.

A country unable to see its own disease

can not bring democracy nor peace,

rather spread its own illness

through

more schools for less education

homeless shelters to call home

history lessons without history

pens afraid to write of darkness.

Blood for oil

stains our,

streets

homes

hospitals

hollywood

music

nightclubs

shiny things

created poverty

truth

politicians
uniforms

guns

planes

bombs

democracy.

The maddows of this country will stop at nothing to justify self serving laws

spewing hatred

propagandas as they try desperately to hold the tent of the circus together

lest we see

the diseases destroying this country

minds of the young

eyes unable to see

a flag stained with death

in a country such as this.

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

The decay of a country no longer able to see.
