The American Dream

i woke up
from my American dream
things are no longer
what they seemed
what was right
and proper then
are relics now
of way back when
human kindness
in short supply
people
impoverished
why?
how did things turn
so far around
to a time we delight
when others fall down
there must be a place
like the ones
i once knew
sanctuary now
is a dreamscape view
i woke up
from the American dream
for if i couldn’t sleep
i’ll surely scream
