Strange happenings

Unbelievable happenings are all around

Nation unrecognizable wavers to and fro

Are we a nation of laws or a nation of fools?

Will we rise to the challenge or fade away?

Deceived man in the mirror telling lies to himself

Changes the words to make the book a fairy tale

Forgotten history screams from dusty pages

Don't, yet we do, oh, we do ignore the danger

Warnings shriek but cannot penetrate the trance

Conceit is high, something new under the sun

History's for losers; what's happened to America?

This time we know better than history
