Taking down the Welcome sign,
And putting America First
Seemed like a good idea at the time
But it will change us for the worse
America’s a flower, forever blooming
Fed by fresh sweat and tears,
Dream’s realizing, hope’s renewing
Opportunity knocks fear on its rear

A plant cannot live off of itself alone
Peas stuck in a pod rot and die
Weakness resides in a field of clones
New voices are needed to answer new why’s.
Deep go the roots that tap into our soul
Never let those dreams lay fallow
Left to perish in a parched, barren hole,
Untended for reasons selfish and shallow
