DARKNESS IN AMERICA
Hatred, sickness, plots against our homeland, they’re coming,
They’re here in this land, they don’t hide as their faces are seen.
Work with you they do, maybe a smile as they pass you by,
As good people they come in from all sides, they don’t have to sneak.
They step from planes with passports and go about their day,
Cruise do these monsters with no morals on ships, welcome to our home.
We have darkness from sea to shining sea, borders are without safety,
They come from there just as they are over there from here, grow with fear.
A flag they plan to replace with a flag that waves for over two hundred years,
Their message is clear, they say it with the murders of our people, we don’t care.
As they become stronger with power and weapons we sit and wonder but it’s real,
What’s really going on, can we trust anybody anywhere, we hope, don’t think so.
Darkness in America is growing fast, you can see it as the sun shines bright,
Pray that a day does not come when our children need to carry a gun in their hand.
This poem as well as “Beyond Terror” bring a different view of the world. I pray we never experience such an outcome except in literature and film.
Thanks for reading, be safe.
