A Look Back at the Lost Summer
Summer ended abruptly
as if somebody pushed an off button;
China and Pakistan were flooded;
Mudslides, earth quakes and wild fires kept their word;
Hurricanes took a sabbatical,
Housing market still at ground floor;
Jobs are few to share;
If we believe in polls,
Majority of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track;
Nobody agrees when it began;
Some say two years ago;
Others say from a long time;
High income taxes are bad says rich;
For jobless no income and no taxes;
Not enough good jobs say middle class;
All we have lots of debt to share;
Trillions for unwanted wars;
Billions for those that caused the crash;
Billions for failed auto industry in Detroit;
Republican say don’t look back at the past
and vote for them for a new beginning;
A new beginning to what end?
Democrats say stick with them;
Stick with them to fell apart?
Burning a holy book
to create a fire storm to kill a fire?
That’s democracy in action;
What choices we have?
