Lost In America

   wanted to be in this country

   can't pay the dues

   the ground fees are too much

   one neighbor's a racist

   the other's a sexist

   couple across the way

   are homophobes

   politicians are for sale

   doctors are entrepreneurs

   ministers spew hate and fear

   a used car salesmen told me a lie

   so did a president

   people talk at me

   want me to be

   just like them

   my heart is a cage

   blood rats

   spinning the wheels

   but I'm too tired

   to feel rage

   had enough
