Made In America


They don’t make ’em like they used to
Long gone are the many days of glory
We used to be such an immovable force
Now a different reality tells its story

Pledging allegiance meant something more
Hand over heart to show our dedication
A flag waved high and proud to represent
Ideals and truths of a superior nation

Since when did our blue collar mentality
Become the most sordid white collar crimes
As we all look back to our distant history
Grasping at straws for those simpler times

Where are our riveting Rosie’s these days
It seems old Uncle Sam has given up hope
He’s hiding in a corner tired and afraid
Ready for the hanging but not enough rope

Nation’s united with concerns in abundance
A once proud people make known their pleas
As a blessed country comes apart at the seams
Our hopes and our dreams get shipped overseas

    • Thanks……I Think? LOL. This was a “long time coming” piece from a disillusioned patriotic proud American soul. Hopefully we can regain some of the old American pride and swagger sooner rather than later.

  1. A hard-hitting and brutal message among the eloquent of penned words, my friend. Thank you always for sharing your wisdom, your heart and your words with us.

    • You are ever welcome D. This one was stewing for a while. Finally the time came to pull the trigger as this was my 100th WP post. A Centennial if you will.
