What Happened? (#1467)

I don’t claim to understand any of this,
Then again comprehension is hit or miss,
How did we let our country get this way?
What is America at the end of the day?

Our economy is in complete shambles,
Our reputation is stuck in the brambles,
Our debt is astronomically high and rising,
And our values we continue compromising,

We continue to fight various wars abroad,
Yet a war without a real enemy is flawed,
Religion keeps trying to take back schools,
We’re drowning in red tape and useless rules,

Big government and lobbyists gain control,
Each political party with their own goal,
All the while Americans have lost their voice,
Whatever happened to free will and choice?

Any Thoughts?
