I JUST HAD TO SAY IT!
ONE AMERICA

Americans have always
shared progressive goals
anti-poverty programs
are a national priority
we believe in Capitalism
with fairness and regulations
that support the workers
that promotes a large middle class
to share in America’s wealth and beauty
to insure a healthy democracy
a land where we’re assured
trial by jury
where one is innocent
until proven guilty
Words that have always
made us stand proud

We share a common dream
as did our parents and our grandparents
that our children
will be better educated and thrive
in an America that always holds
the promise that they can do better
where opportunity invites them
to be inventive and creative
This is the America where I grew up
The America I want my children
to inherit
