When truth was revered
And falsehoods feared
When voting was fair
Not in disrepair

Never had to explain
What’s a two-cents plain
Or translate what you mean
Ordering egg cream

When we earned a fair wage
When there was no road rage
When the water we’d drink
Had no lead, didn’t stink

Before schools had computers
Or active gun shooters
Our kids could ride bikes
And safely take hikes

When father knew best
And Loretta was young
On our days off we’d rest
And have clean family fun

Our parks were unspoiled still
No place for an oil drill
Picnic woes were lots of ants
Not constant tweets of vicious rants

When our leaders would lead
For OUR good not their greed
And promoted no hate
THEN America was great!
