Dysfunction Junction

(American Style)

America, you’ve lost
Your luster in all your
Dysfunctional bluster.

The world sees you as
One gigantic cluster…
So sadly shame is all

You can muster.

America, you’ve lost
Your vision and are left
With pain and division.

When did you claim this
Detrimental decision to
Engage in what is a

Cataclysmic collision?

America, you’ve lost
Your pulse, every reason
You’ve given is false.

Though every lie is
Seasoned they cannot
Be reasoned away in a

Blended but bitter sauce.
