Sorry, but
we’re out of balance.
we’re out of whack.
we’re out of order.
We’re America.

Our government is broken.
It works fine when tempered
with honesty, integrity, and common sense.
But try running it on
greed, cunning, and opportunism and
the world’s shinning light will go out.

But there’s hope.
Replace political correctness and spin,
with logic and truthfulness.
Replace payoffs and bribes,
with expectations and accountability.
Replace the self-serving with the compassionate.
Better yet,
just replace the politicians with “Americans”.

Sorry
