a nation in distress

I wrote this in high school. As usual, I was being a smartass, trying to cheat the system… I was combining two assignments into one piece: write a satire and write something in a form that you’ve never used before (rap).

I’m going to preface this with: I don’t listen to very much rap and I’m a mediocre writer at best.

That being said, I think it is the perfect offering to you, my reader(s?)*, to give proper respect to the birthday of our crumbling democracy.

America’s worth it, everything’s perfect.
Babies always smile cuz their mommas’ always there.
Kids don’t run away cuz their parents always care.
No one’s ever sick, or hungry, or cryin,
cuz everyone loves and keeps on tryin.
Children have homes with two parents carin.
Everything’s good, cuz everyone’s sharin.

Breathe it…
America’s worth it, everything’s perfect.
The perfect place for the perfect race.
The perfect game with just enough fame.
The perfect way for every perfect day.
The perfect side where we all got pride.
It’s where we are that got us this far.

America’s worth it, everything’s perfect.
This is the country where dreams come true.
Shit, even the cow can jump over the moon.
No one’s ever shot, or runnin, or hidin,
cuz no one ever needs a person to confide in.
Everyone’s chillin, with every family and friend.
Everything’s cool, cuz this life will never end.

America’s worth it, everything’s perfect.
People always laughin, cuz everything’s fine.
No one’s ever hurried, cuz we all got time.
Nothing’s ever wrong, or guilty, or unfair,
cuz there ain’t any crimes or need to clear the air.
No one ever argues, screamin and fightin.
Everything’s right, cuz evil’s not bitin.

Check it…
America’s worth it, everything’s perfect.
The perfect place for the perfect race.
The perfect game with just enough fame.
The perfect way for every perfect day.
The perfect side where we all got pride.
It’s where we are that got us this far.

 

*Do I have more than one reader? The only reason I even know that I have one is because it’s a friend who recently brought it up in conversation. Haha!
