To the REAL hero’s in our lives, & of our Country, the ones willing to Stand up & make a stand! Not necessarily those who just hold an office, wear a uniform, have a title, &/or pretend!

Wake Up America!

Something odd is in the AIR; Leaders, "Servants", don't you care?

We're tainted, abused, & offended, we thought you were there for our care;

We give you confidence, "Shields", votes, & DARE! In return for abuse & dispair!

Respect is NOT easily given, much harder to earn back again: 

What right have you got to reign terror, then thump at your chests like a bear???

Our Governors, Mayors, & leaders, instead of denouncing the sin...

Rather than fix or make better, make worse, (It's a fault that they share!)

Flush all our rights and our freedoms, thinking that's where to begin~

Lost respect, & ALL faith in their guidance, responding with curfews, hot air!!!

These spineless, ridiculous "Leaders", no consciousness left there within -

If asked for my humble opinion, "Let's vote to recall, clear the air!!!"

No peaceful or tranquil illusions, that we as a Nation give in...

Let's raise ALL our voices in Union; "Give 'em the Electric Chair!!!"

 

Yes, jail the despicable culprits; 
Or kicked to the curb, derrière!!!

Good point, a title and an office don't make someone smarter or more benevolent. Public officials need to be held to a standard, and exposed when they use their power and influence for their own gain. Great work!

Good job capturing the tense emotional state of America right now. Everyone is so on edge, and your writing depicts that perfectly.

It is sad that we cannot trust those we are meant to be able to trust. We'd like to think there are people we know will support our safety but we don't not have that in these times. I enjoyed your poem and your point was very strong, it came across well.
