Oh! Great nation of mine,
I am a proud be a part of this time.
A time where we have gone beyond the sky,
Yet down to earth we are, for the values we live by.
 
A few good men bring us the pride,
The Rouges in politics keep us tide.
Take on us and prove us wrong they say,
A small price for a nation? They know, you and I will not pay.
 
Life has value, but money means more,
Steal from the poor till you can carry no more,
To save it you need power, for power money,
The story continues like the Bee's and the Honey.
 
Greed knows no limit, no blood, no race,
It has made great men fall from grace.
To build a great nation, we need trust in deed,
Remeber in everystep,
One man's Greed, tomorrow will be everybody's need.
 
What we were taught as toddlers was not rocket science,
What we lost is innocance, with the book called moral science.
Wasn't it wrong to steal even a dime,
Why has it changed with time?
Oh! Great nation of mine.
