violence lingers silently beyond
reason's border without understanding
demanding fervent followers respond
to a charismatic fool commanding

politicians reopen borders wide
under the guise of America's dream
twisted in knots by lying lib'ral pride
for destruction's deception to redeem

interlopers from a foreign country
forego family for reassurance
of promised governmental gallantry
to open shifting doors of tolerance

searching for freedom's opportunity
throughout a land languishing divided
in order to destroy humanity
and to allow evil reign unguided

opposition's anger in rage increase
against a government out of control
almost ready for oppression's release
from a population virtue extol

when frustration flows across golden plain
to climb the highest mountain to foresee
patriots coming to destroy death's reign
and to finally overthrow D.C.
