In America you can stand up

for the tormented and persecuted

and the crowd will stand with you.

Today someone in the crowd

will persecute you for standing up.

In America the voices have grown

to a cacophony with the goal

to shout down, not out.

To destroy you

before you turn on me,

and these are not facts

but they are true,

this is not America.
