This Land Divided - Poem by mark king

(I am a freedom loving American, and a Veteran. I have faith, love, poetry and art. I have been from riches to rags. I’m working my way back up with faith, love, friends, poetry and art. I was first published when I lived in a homeless shelter. If I can do that, what can you do?)

One nation,

One nation indivisible is divided
With an upper class split
From those who shop
And those so high in the sky
Others shop for them
As well as pay the bills
Raise the kids
Supervise the servants
Put food in their mouths
And everything else

Who fuels it?

Money fuels the explosion
At the top
Wealth builds amongst the few
With no new seams of gold
Or uranium
And no more domestic oil deposits
Discovered or drilled
Where does it come from?
The endless wars
Only fuel military contractors
And suppliers
It comes from squeezing Americans!

The workers,

Take away pensions and benefits
Because it swells profits
Easy credit on dubious terms
With high interest
Raising insurance premiums
And refusing to insure
Those who might make a claim
Downsizing and outsourcing
To boost share profits
Reduce the wages
Distract us with lines like…..
We are going to a service economy!
Just another way to say
We are giving it all away
(Like the steel industry, etc)
As the looting continues
The average American
Is maxed out
Overworked and overspent

Christian values?

Propaganda says
Ban gay marriage
But how can two peoples
Marriage threaten another
Isn’t marriage about good values?
And morale’s
The Bible does have homophobia
Endorsements of slavery
And animal sacrifice
But not a word about gay marriage
Yet poverty and economic injustice
Fill the Bible!
Remember Jesus
He was a hardliner
Of the redistribution of wealth
Imagine what he’d say?
About the Bush tax cuts
Secular liberals
Should invoke Jesus
One lesson from the ancient Christians
Should be followed
By all liberals and progressives
They stood against imperial Rome
With their hearts, souls and bodies
Believing in change
What can you do?

What is left?

How many wake-up calls
Do we need?
We need a new deal
Should we continue to fall apart?
Into trailer parks, tenements
And gated communities
As Americans and country
We can restore our glory
Beauty and respect from ourselves
And the world!
But it must happen now
Do not be fooled
The democrats are not communists
My Grandpa summed it up like this…..
The republicans are the party for the rich
And the democrats are for the working people
Nothing has changed
We have just forgotten
Fooled by the right
When it was really wrong
