America the Greedy by Gary R. Hess

This poem was written during a time I was upset with American politics and how the federal government was spending tax payers money and how hard it is for poor families to get out of poverty.

America the Greedy
by 

Hundreds of dollars spent on time
Money wasted for every being
Getting hurt every moment
Losing faith this very second

What is there to do in this life?
Knowing I won't have what I need
Not the house or secure job
Not the right life to live

America the great
Or injustice
That's the way it is
In this great nation

The poor can't succeed
The poor can't live
The poor can't live love
America is misery
