Only in America…

Only in America

Only in America-

Do we have opportunity to worship God freely,

But our churches are empty

 

Only in America-

We have the right to free speech

But don’t control our anger and we riot

 

Only in America-

We claim “all lives matter”

But we turn away refugees fleeing impending death

 

Only in America-

We need a “special” month to prompt us

To recognize the contributions of people of color

 

Only in America-

We think building a wall

Promotes a prudent immigrancy policy

 

Only in America-

Do we think regulating guns

Will stop those that hate from killing

 

Only in America-

We promote and value education

But then make it too expensive for most to attain it

 

Only in America-

We claim to be the “United”  States

And are more divided then ever
