This is just a few verses I put together. Before you read this please know that I am not anti-government or anything. I just think they need to be kept in check. :)
The State Of The Union
The media's got a stronghold on society
You might choose the flavor, but they choose the variety
Its got me scared man. Its time to stand and
Come together as one to formulate a damn plan.
They call it a melting pot. Turn the heat down
Its time to all join hands together in peace now
Or take to the streets now. Make our voices heard
Instead we give away our choices and follow the herd
Information we get isn't investigated then reported
It's paraphrased, opinion based, spun, and distorted
What's bred from biased views, is not really news
so the whole 'no news is good news' is not really true
The more outlets we have, the more people seem confused
By cons fusing slogans to ad-homs and excuse
"The place for politics", "The World Leader in News",
"Fair and Balanced"; each one a ruse
And the state of politics really makes me sick
Politicians just keep slinging mud 'til it sticks
Trying to prove their high morals by painting others as wicked
Creating high murals in idolatry full of cynics.
They sold the soul of responsibilities
and continually rape a system
Bought buy sponsors with abilities
to essentially shape decisions.
Neocons with blind faith, Liberals with false hopes
have common sense and rationality walking a thin rope
Extreme actions of both result the same way
Some benefit, and the rest just rot away.
If not today, then when will we realize
Five-hundred and thirty-five shouldn't control our lives.
Neither should nine, impede on our rights.
They all have a role and that role should be slight.
We the citizens must keep them balanced and in check
Make sure they rightfully check balances before writing checks
Make sure that checks and balances are in place and correct
And correct imbalances thru vote checks and protests.
United we stand and divided we fall
That was true in Aesop's fable and in John Dickenson's song
Every conscious being knows innately right and wrong
Let's stand up for
