Wake Up America

 

Wake up America,

or we are doomed,

we’ve always produced,

more than we consumed.

But, that’s not the way,

that it is today,

now, we get all our goods,

from so far away.

And what little, we do make,

has but, little worth,

now the jobs, we all had,

are somewhere else, on earth.

 Even our food, is now imported

and that I can’t believe,

with, all our fertile, farmland,

I somehow, feel deceived.

Some folks say, the unions,

are the ones, to blame,

But, I say, it’s Congress,

that should bear, the shame.

With tariffs and treaties,

and if we look close, we’ll find,

few pockets, of resistance,

and more pockets, that were lined.
