An Empire of Fools

What have we become?

An empire of fools?

A nation of bigots and liars.

We the people have become us vs. them.

 

Do we accept this?

Do we welcome the demands of a mad clown?

Death in the streets and murder by the guards.

A collapsed ship captained by a drunken sailor.

 

How can we stop what has become inevitable?

How do we come together in the darkest of hours?

I wonder if things will ever change.

Can we rise up to fight the power?

 

How many must lose their father?

How many students need to perish?

The false gods on the hill hide and cower.

A herd of vile, cruel sheep.

 

But they will not rule forever.

As long as men can fight,

As long as women can march,

As long as we stand together,

Tall and beautiful,

We the people shall rise from the ashes.

 

You and I cannot lose hope.

Because even when the dawn seems impossible,

Your tears will subside,

And America will become beautiful once more.
