Over 8 YEARS ago—I wrote this on THIS site. Few then really cared about it—some made FUN of what I wrote....
I wonder if they STILL feel this way NOW...

This came to me, earlier, and so, i decided to put it into words. See how you all like it.
America, I miss you.
Remember,the country we once Knew, With Landscapes just lovely, and Oceans, so blue, and people who were kind, and who’s promises were true? America, oh,America,I miss you.
As kids, we played in the woods, and in the park, From early in the morning, until well after dark. And our parents, they taught us right, and wrong, and how to stand on our own, to be steadfast and strong.
From our earliest years, we were taught that morals mattered,
They made the country strong, and prevented lives from being shattered.
But, somewhere along the way, those things have been forgotten,
Replaced by somethng self-centered, and just totally rotten.
And children who are mean, and have no concern about others,
Be it, their teachers, parents, or sisters and brothers.
In our Government, those who try to do right,
Are called “mean spirited, and always ready to fight”.
And our courts seem to defend those who this counrty would weaken,
allowing others to come in, who desire to see our nation shattered and beaten.
When did trying to do right, suddenly become “wrong”, and where are the moral principles, that guided this country, for so long?
They have been replaced by an attitude of”just do what you feel”,
And if someone else gets hurt along they way, well, that’s just part of the deal.
Once in this land, little children were cherished, and those who hurt them, they were rounded up, and then they perished.
but,now, human life has little value, and is of little worth, When a child’s life is routinely snuffed out, even before birth.
In Neighborhoods, the children all played together, and each others parents, they all knew,
But now, they cannot play together, ‘cause if one gets their felings hurt, the other parents will SUE.
This sure is not the country, I once loved, the country I once knew,
America, Oh America, I miss you.
