<b>U</b>nited firmly, once upon a time,
'<b>N</b>eath faith in God and freedom's crystal chime,
<b>I</b>t seems she's sliding steeply from her prime.
<b>T</b>he leaders humanistic mantras give;
<b>E</b>xpunging precious lives before they live;
<b>D</b>iffusing "truth" strained through a Godless sieve.
<b>S</b>elf-centeredness appears to <b>r</b>eign supreme,
<b>T</b>o counterfeit Americans' old dream
<b>A</b>bout hard work, and not just how to scheme.
<b>T</b>he tried and true now plummet toward demise;
<b>E</b>ach doing what is right in his own eyes;
<b>S</b>ome seem to serve, but power is their prize.
<b>O</b>ppression will encroach, though in disguise,
<b>F</b>or good of all, our freedom compromise,
<b>A</b>nd seek to suffocate God's truth with lies.
<b>M</b>y hope is that the remnant who believe,
<b>E</b>xemplify God's love, and hearts retrieve,
<b>R</b>evealing hedonism does deceive.
<b>I</b> pray we reunite, turn back to God,
<b>C</b>onfessing and repenting lest He nod

Judges 21:25b. "Every man did that which was right in his own eyes."
