Building the American Dream
Is a sandcastle of beauty
Garnering the attention of all

Washed ashore by the next wave
Amazed it didn’t stand
Saddened by its demise
Troubled by the realization
Everything pointed this direction

Oh, what have we done?
Faithfully pursuing riches

Resigning ourselves to less
Evading the question
Falsifying the data
Undermining the truth
Still time to turn back?
Enlighten us to choose

TO SEE
TO HEAR
TO FOLLOW
TO DAY
