My friend Denise wrote this and I just had to share it with everyone...

"Patriotic Pretender"



The United States
Perfection from the red woods to
Staten Island

Invincible because we name the stakes
In a world of cell
phones, Motorola, Verizon
No sun on the horizon, there is no
communication
Brotherly love is fake

So why pay this roaming charge
fee?
When it's I'll attack you & you'll attack me
You'll kill four
& I'll leave it to the grade school children
To break down the
doors

With handguns that out weighed their books
Triggering
consequences that cannot compensate
For the lives that they have
took

Wrap it all up in a Coca-Cola moment
Hire, Sell, Fire,
Trade
We didn't buy it we stole it
This freedom or the idea of it we've
made

And the shock factor in our media is tiring
Channel surfing for
our next salvation
It's just like Ani said, so inspiring
"Take away our
Playstations and we are a third world nation."

Rest assure kids we're
better than we've been
Redefining family
Wrestling for our
integrity
Uncle Sam has always been your friend

Well, except when you
were
Female
Black
Young
Gay
"Don't ask Don't tell",
right?
What's the difference if I'm willing to fight?
But perfection is
blurry in a land that doesn't play
By the rules that it's
made

Majority rules & the good ol' U.S.
Is better than the
rest
Salute your stars and stripes
Buy a flag and
God bless

Red,
White, & Blue like a Versace trend
Too many innocents lost
9/11 was
about opening the eyes of this nation and
It's those fatherless children
who've paid that cost


We who are so cocky with the pains of
injustice
We've equally wrought
"We've overcome our history"
We're not
better than our past or any other nation
We just haven't been
caught

Stay off that bandwagon & remember
Don't buy your pride
from a flag peddling street vendor
Be an original
Not a patriotic
pretender
