I have seen what has been going on in politics and whatever and, by this point, my only opinion is that this country is doomed, no ifs, ands, or buts, it's just doomed and this is what my poem is about about.

I've seen something awful happen
Yes, it is very awful
I have seen it coming, have you all, too?

It is the collapse of what was

The collapse of what was is coming
Can't you see?
This was happening all along

Democracy is fading
Politicians lie
Freedom and the persuit of happiness no longer matter

The economy has fallen
Many jobs have been lost
Many hurt and many scream

People blame, people complain
Nevertheless, what for?
The country is rife with corruption and greed

The things I speak of are The Collapse
Cringe and be afraid
The Collapse was inevitable

It was building up
Laying dormant
Now it has awakened

It is happening and I have seen it coming
Yet, it came
Cringe and be afraid

We are in the shadow of the The Collapse
