i had to write a poem in english class, i dreaded the assignment at first, but i kinda got into it and my poem came out alright for 15 minutes of work. every 4 lines rhyme. thought some of you might enjoy it, let me know what you think...
I've never had a poetic imagination,
I would rather write a serious publication,
Perhaps a protest against Iraq's liberation,
Which is actually an unnecessary invasion.
There is no real reason for this war near Kuwait,
Other than to see how much money Bush can make,
While our freedom is carried away in the wake,
I wish someone would stop this catastrophe for goodness sake.
I don't see how we can be so happy eating our freedom fries,
While a thousand miles away another innocent person dies,
The president simply ignores the protestor's cries,
And slowly brings our country to its demise.
I wonder if our nation will ever open its eyes and see,
Something other than the propaganda on ABC,
While our media makes news into a mockery,
Our government works to keep its crimes low key.
My only wish is that there will be an upward turn,
Before I see my country crash and burn.
"It's better to burn out, than to fade away."
