What happened,
To the Land of the Free,
To the Home of the Brave.
What happened,
To the Land of Opportunity,
To the Land of Life.
What Happened!

We are slaves.
Yes, slavery still happens today!
We are stuck in a spot,
Some will rise above,
But most of us stay this way.

We have become cowards
To the cause.
Everything we fought
For in the past,
Is now lost.
Freedom and Justice now gone.

We are now poor,
Paying money to support
Drug habits and w*****.
The stars we idolize
Get high everynight.
That's how our money goes
Out of Sight.

We are all dead;
Walking like zombies
Through everyday,
Cause we are slaves, or cowards,
And no money for the poor.
This is every one of us,
To the core.

an interesting commentary with a lot to say. Kudos for this poem having major guts ...<br /> the not so good part- i'm having a hard time relating how rock star parties destroyed our american cliches such as land of the free home of the brave,<br /> as well as how "every one of us" will give nothing to the poor...what about the poor people...i think a lot could be better about this..<br /> but again i respect the gutsiness
