The American Dream

The American Dream

She only
wanted
to be able
to live
the American Dream

Fantasies of Being
the Queen
Of her own
destiny
were replaced
by "doing johns"
all day long
on her knees

Smuggled
in a trailer
with 20 or so
felt like
human cattle
being transported
for slaughter

The land of freedom
the home of the brave
could only be
seen through
a window
of  the hotel room
at the motel 6

The Coyote smiled
at the prospect
of an open border
as the call
for civil rights
meant increased
revenue
for his wallet

The American's  desire
for morality
fuels the
engine
to corruption

For every action
there is a
reaction
Political Agendas
on both fronts
feeds the silver
to her
reality
of the
American Dream

Dirty truth
smitten
by Progressive
Idealism
Capitalist Wealth
donated
at the Offering plate
of a conservative
Evangelical Church

True evil
goes beyond
the Brothel

True Evil
comes in a form
of a self serving veil
called ignorance
worn both
by those
who wear a "Pink Beanie"
and a Red Baseball Cap
True evil
Manifests
in our delusions
of what we
call the
American Dream

Hi Greg....I get so upset over things like this going on right under all of our noses....Girls traded for money like cattle to be used and abused..and damaged forever by those in power who cover their tracks.  Nothing like this should ever be able to occur.  So sad, Greg.  I hope in the future the American Dream can truly show a better reflection of values and concern for their own... Sickening....Great awareness write. xo ;)

Cherie thank you.  It really is under our noses but we refuse as a society to deal with it.  Some of the very progressive open border proposals have already shown to be fuel that ignite these notrocities

(for me)..... is truly excellent writing!!.......ALL STARS!! & PINNED!!..,...smokin' grooves my friend!!....smokin' grooves!!.......T xo 🐧❤👍
