Of The People And By The People

A government of the people,
And by the people...
Representing their wishes 'exclusively',
As they are documented to present...
Reflects the endorsement to enforce,
Those wishes and wants...
Upon 'certain' people to grant and uphold,
As they have insisted and persisted to get.
But today many suffer to pay the consequences,
With a price set so high and a cost at their expense.

And if these wishes declared wanted to be dispensed,
As documented to be left aging to fade senselessness...
Have created internal griefs to bear disbelief witnessed,
It is the people and by the people to correct and fix...
With an examining themselves to 'see' the detriment,
That a feeding of greed and selfishness has caused...
To not blame the government or 'their' elected officials,
They have picked to represent their wishes to benefit...
A quality of life sliding downhill quick exposing their flaws.
But none of it intended for this meant to be an entitlement.

Of the people and by the people,
That's where conflicts initiate.
Of the people and by the people,
That's where discrimination baits.
Of the people and by the people,
That's where racism creates a hate.
Of the people and by the people,
That's where this 'stuff' begins.
And if the people decided it,
Divisions begun would end!

Of the people and by the people,
No votes...
Can mend what's broken.
Of the people and by the people,
No votes...
Can mend what's broken.
Of the people and by the people,
No votes...
Can mend what's broken.
Folks?
Mend what's broken.
You can mend to fix what's broken.
