          AMERICAN  DREAM

The American dream gone up in smoke,
So we all sit around and take another toke.
Working hard at minimum wage,
To come home in a state of rage.
So we all dream our life away,
Letís save reality for another day.
Tell your kids the truth they donít know why,
They feel the truth is a twisted lie.
You live and learn, you learn you live,
The reality is it will never end.

Powerful poem, Kitkat. Sad but true for so many.

 Denise

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

hi kitkat,

this made your poem powerful for me:

Tell your kids the truth they donít know why,
They feel the truth is a twisted lie.
