If this country isn't great today
It is only cause we made it that way.
This country has the recipe for greatness-
Freedom. Rights. Religion.
All of these were hard-won
And are more than enough to get things done.
But it's the citizens' responsibility to keep
Things correct in our nation.
However, being uninformed for generations,
Our complacent and disenchanted citizens
Have neglected their civil dividends.
How can we expect anyone or anything to be great
If we don't treat it like it is that way?
Complaining won't make the problems go away.
So you can rant and rave, slash and slam
But that won't change a thing-
Only action can.
