Make America Great Again! Huh?

by okanaganbell

"Let's Make America Great Again!" *Sigh*
Great catch phrase! But...It's a ruse!...It's a lie!
Let's put the cards on the table! Shall we...Why?
(Your Brothers and Sisters will probably die!)
The words are the shallows of a deeper intent
Meant to allure, with a 'come hither' scent
Confusing the people, hardening their heart
To see only the surface and pull them apart
Skin color...Religion
Aren't one, respectively
Being gay or straight doesn't define you, conclusively
The politicians of this world mostly agree
But, there are always bad apples picked carelessly
Each leader, in their own way, seeking applause
We see you, Mr. President!
Promoting your cause.

Dear Sir:
Sacrifice. Bloodshed. Blame. "The Greater Good!"
Power hungry narcissism, completely understood
Sit back, defiant...Poke all the bears
Implant the hatred, split all the hairs
Antagonize everyone, so they fight in the street
Good job Mr. President! Misleading the Sheep
Distraction-Retraction...Hail to the Chief!
Reaction-Infraction...Jail to the Thief!
Minions, placate your ego. Kiss your ass-piring swill
Turn neighbors on neighbors in "Charlottesville"
"Violence in Virginia", exposed your "many sides"
"March for Truth!" @Hashtag: TheRussianRides
Lack of compassion, 'Not' a leadership quality
Creates disharmony, resentment...
Not a "Great Country" policy
For leaders gone amok and not held accountable
Reinforces the people to be discountable
So...Mr. President, of the USA, to "Make America Great" today
Take lessons from the people. Hear ALL their cries
Learn from our past, the results, the lies
Talk truths, decide for all. To stand proud, as ONE
Own your real skill; Divide and conquer...Your goal
Your gun

Dear People:
Skin color doesn't matter and beliefs aren't law
Loving who you love isn't a flaw
To be who you are, IS a human right
Just being alive, not reason to fight
Hatred NOT an option when love is pure
Sexism is hypocrisy, our value procured
War is unnecessary, let comradery begin
For...Equality's reality shows stability within
No matter the race, the color, the words
We're all human beings!
Same sheep...Different herds
We all have the right to stand and say NO
To violence, racism, bigotry, and war
Just let the leaders, alone, fight their enemy
The winner gets a trophy, the glory, the anomie
All on their own without us used as bait
Helping their cause...Envy and hate
Leave us to OUR land. It's NOT just YOURS
Freedom and choices from Truth...
Opens; "Great" doors
