America Has Fallen

Stunned we stood gasping
Unable to even breathe, as
Our America tries crawling
Out from the mangled debris
Of her own moral ignorance.

History has no doubt crippled
Her fragile psyche so severely.
America is balling I see, and I
Proclaim this most sincerely
From her extreme intolerance.

What was established to endure
Is now beginning to rapidly fail.
This America we love has fallen,
As she is chasing her own tail in
One desperate act of defiance.

Sadly, today America has fallen.
