America…

Statue Of Liberty, New York, Ny, Nyc

the government
cannot make money off of peace
or equality
that’s why we don’t have those things
there’s no money in happiness either
there’s money in war
and hatred
there’s money in drugs
guns
violence
ignorance
hunger
slavery
and greed
but there’s nothing
for the government to make
off of kindness
compassion
or generosity
those things
have no value to
greedy people
who hunger for power
over others
anything that
supports life
is not allowed
everything that
supports ugliness
death
and violence
is welcomed
with open arms

America isn’t beautiful
I don’t think she never was
