The Fatigue of a Nation
Headlines take a stroll across tablets and windows
Reflections of wealthy white men, give them control
Every headline induces media fatigue
A populist us versus them, mentality.
Attention seeking, ratings driven, long lasting
Remembrance of citizens, accrue interest
The Market collapse, the bubble burst, banks own homes
Bad debt’s unpaid, homes lost to predatory loans.
Validation for the president, it’s a goal
Lost the popular public by millions of votes
Soul of a nation, speculation in control
Political dilettantes making policy
The body politic lacking morality
Hold back, move forward, expertly divide, exploit
Presidential fatigue like rain drops, flooding us
Enough unrest to erode mountains, resistance
Gerrymandered districts struck down, reimpose lines
From urban sprawl to rural, maps ensure success
All the general’s men, a stalemate, no end
Redraw battle lines, seize lands, oversea cities
Crumbling buildings, terror ridden catastrophe
Redeploy troops for the generational fight.
