Someone should really get mad,
our policies have been very bad.
We invade other lands
when we should take a stand
before we send anymore lads.
It seems always to start the same way:
some jerk’s gonna come save the day.
“We must take their ground,
there’s evil around,
by the way, be very afraid.”
Our children are watching you know,
they get that it’s all a big show.
Though leaders distract
we know it’s an act,
they spout freedom! while letting it go.
Sometimes I think that we could
do deeds that are really good.
Do more to save them,
instead of the mayhem,
help people, the way that we should.
When I think what could be in store for us,
I look to countries before us.
Though empires decline
they seem to do fine,
perhaps we could yet, be glorious.
