Ars Poetica: Civil War

Wed, 03/28/2018 - 15:14 -- J.James

Steady growth in ignorance brings forth naive hardship

Constantly educating the United States with misleading information

Such an abundance of corruption, camouflaging the harshness

With current national events eventually becoming false education


The respect for mankind is gradually diminishing

Almost as if disrespecting authority is encouraged and immediate

Children without physical discipline gets treated like they’re innocent

Using different avenues to benefit their actions, like the media


Viewing the news just to see that taxpayers money go to others countries

Going more into debt while America still borrow more money

The President has no voice of the matter, but to produce some suggestive recoveries

Then that’s when war becomes an option to study


Then there’s sexuality, drugs, racism, and the control of firearms

Sodom of Gomorrah emerging in the states, because of freedom allowed

Multiple issues and opportunities lead to chaos, even if unarmed

But this time the land want be torched to the ground, it’ll be… a mushroom cloud.
