Treasure Island

Sandra Feldman


Fix It!


You broke it, People,
Fix It!
This is the US of A.,
Not some European, gray,
Has been Country,
Get those Covered Wagons out!
The pioneering spirit,
Go reconquer, do not doubt,
Fix It!
We must get out,
Of this impasse and shout,
'We are Americans,
And we know what Work,
And Liberty are All About'
So, FIX IT,
Now!

    This is a universal sentiment. Man's the one who drew the lines of separation. There is only one world under the same sky feeling the same pain underneath the same sun. Though I can understand your frustration I feel the same with outsourcing. Glad to see someone speak boldly in a poetical world full of placaters! (Report) Reply

    This sounds like me when I read or watch the news... So frustrating! ! ! ! My other teenage friends, are like, Why torture yourself? But I just can't help but feel that I must watch the country crumble and scream, Hurry before it's too late! (Report) Reply

    I can feel your anger and frustration Sandra - much the same over here, but nothing ever seems to get fixed here either. (Report) Reply

    Rally the troops, that apathy can not be the new normal! I stand with you and salute your brave request....a wake up call is needed! Strong sentiment shared herein. (Report) Reply

And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
