Straight Talk Live (That Star Spangled Banner )

You gave us the throne of the universe      
Love and honor unto mankind as we daily converse          
The storms, the sun, the rains          
Manmade emollients to ease the discomfort of our pains          
The window of opportunity to ensue at our feet          
Life, liberty, and the pursuit as great minds greet       
You thou I walk through the valley of the shallow of death          
Labored breaths, that beaming light casted on my soul in the moment of time I felt          
A promise from Your son, You, we shall divinely meet          
The bombs are still so loud          
Faces eradicated as citizens who once stood begging for freedom in crowds          
Does that old star spangled banner still wave            
How many more lives to be taken before been lowered in graves          
We gave you the oath of our loyalty by countless votes          
You stand as Commander In Chief, have you forgot about the rite of passage from our ancestral’ s boats          
The separatism of walls have been infringed upon, humans in search of peace have flooded in          
So many stood in line on the promise America will be fair for all, as a nation we’re make it great once again            
The journey to heal will start from reparations of the forefather’s sin          
My eyes have seen the coming of glory for others            
Not for the Moorish generation, or for the systematic burdens of a brother          
Is the demoralizing propaganda of fixing our grievances with a venomous injection          
The same as a Tuskegee trial without medication, without any government hesitation, no interference, no scientific rejection          
We stand hand in hand to uplift          
The democracy of this country is not forgotten upon hard times, courts now in favor to evict          
Yet, welcoming others whose lands we’ve taken, homeless rings, the true patronage of this country is legit          
On your word, withdrew troops, diplomatic and servitude Americans still intact            
The victors are now the prey, time is running out POTUS, weapons, which we left behind by our faux pas are now pointing at our backs          
Media’s translation of births and deaths fixated by uprising numbers          
If you do not know your science, your biology, anatomy and physiology, or chemistry then your mind is in slumber          
Inhale and exhale, why? The air is cloud seeded, environmental polluted            
The water has fluoride and lead in it, and is never entirely diluted          
Die for a country as a hero, kinfolk given a folded flag, for classified or black ops military's secrets not mentioned when that serviceman or servicewoman saluted          
I think I will sit here and think about what the gentleman who looks at the clouds is pondering          
And that is Another Straight Talk Live For You          
Please stay safe out there everyone, and take care of your health, and most importantly, your mind
