The Plight We Thought We Had

The Plight We Thought We Had

A Poem by Allyson Wolfe

The land of the free is up to interpretation,

why can't we spread that freedom on to other nations?

Venezuela, Algeria, Egypt and the like.

Dictators and rulers! Wrong! Civilization on a pike.

I see my friends suffer, they worry for their families.

What of our American dream, do we instigate these calamities?

Concerned with ourselves, sure we might be in debt,

but can this compare to the nations who's real resources have been spent?

The people are hungry, homeless, and in dire f*****g need

of a plan to help them try and succeed.

 

So while we sit here and complain about how we don't have steaks or ice cream,

can we think better of the child so hungry he can't help but scream?

While we sit here and complain about how warm it feels in class,

can we think better of the family, homeless, who has wait of a winter yet to pass?

Think about that.

I really appreciate your combatative, steadfast spirit here, Allyson, you have raised so many high priority issues, all so cryptic What I like so much also and what moved me, is how your writing is evidently spurred through your own direct observations and experience, backed up by a sound framework to argue through your points, great writing, very well done Allyson Wolf

PS: I was so moved and I felt for everyone
