There is a ticking time bomb on Capitol Hill

No it’s not made from explosives

It’s assembled in greed

And overstepping of boundaries

Freedom is not free

It comes at a price

Now there are those

Who make a living at

Giving away

What is not theirs to freely give

Tic tic tic

The meltdown comes closer

As ludicrous statements fly

From the lips of self service

The power mongers assemble

Armed for battle with loose cannons

Stuffed with lies of the day

While conflict and corruption

Take their toll on the foundation

Of a nation only birthed

To be destroyed
