Douglas Polk- Two Poems

In God We Trust

In God We Trust
the slogan on our money,
in truth,
a bald faced lie,
the birth of a child,
no longer a sacred event,
or a gift from God,
now only more livestock to be managed,
parenthood to be planned,
and if mistakes made,
the innocent allowed to die,
women can kill before the birth,
was only more unwanted livestock,
In God We Trust
we ask for God's blessings,
in both speech and song,
yet defy His teachings,
more everyday,
We trust in ourselves to know His will,
nothing is timeless,
things can't be written in stone,
or in blood,
In God We Trust
we plan our future,
and buy insurance to protect our life, 
and our health,
trusting the government and doctors to see us through,
they instead of God to decide our fate,
tell us when the end has finally come,
In God We Trust,
hypocrites all.

Serfdom Offered

the serfs of old Russia,
the spiritual ancestors of the people,
now living in the land of the free,
the mindset the same,
their needs to be met by the rich and the strong,
and suddenly not free,
shackled by Biden and the men and women of Washington D.C.,
ignorant and unkempt,
in the land of the free,
the tears of Washington and Jefferson falling unseen.
