America the Beautiful

This is the greatest country
not many would argue that.
where else could one make millions
on stuff that makes us fat.

We work and work through the night
with gigs,metal, and bushels.
Then with sudden excitement
waste our paychecks on infomercials.

We drive the biggest cars
making clouds for the atmosphere,
but when VP's tell us of global warming
we live our lives in fear.

Race, race, and race.
That's all americans do.
Never taking time for ourselves
unless this weeks Idol is new.

This is the greatest country
not many would argue this
from all corners of the world they come
to get a taste of the American bliss.

There are simply no words to express the emotion I am feeling, while I read this.
