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
