American Nightmare

On the outside it may seem
That every kid in America is fine.
But on the inside they scream
“When will the dream finally be mine?”

Stressed to the point
They cannot deal with their situation
They try to roll their joint
Is this normal for our nation?

Sadly, it is not rare
in this land
for there to be haze in the air.
How much longer can our country stand?

Is this what we fought for?
A cause that was so noble
it shook our ancestors to the core
A once moving cause that has rendered us immobile

The American Dream has become
A scary thought that fills a child with despair.
One day soon we will succumb
to the American Nightmare.
