"Poetry & Rhymes" by William Hancock

“Once Upon A Time”.. . in America


Once Upon A Time;
We Were A Country To Be So Proud Of,
To Be An American Meant Something;

We Held Our Heads High,
And Answered To No One.
We Protected The Weak,
And Stood For What’s Right.

We Went Out To Save Life,
And Always Be Counted On.
We Were A Great Heat,
And Fought The Good Fight.

We Were So Great Once,.. . .
Once Upon A Time In America.. .

“America is Not The Greatest Country in The World Anymore”
