               He walks all alone by the railroad tracks
               Carryin' what he owns in a couple of sacks
               Our collective thumb keeps pushing him down
               Told him many times he's not welcome in town

                     He doesn’t know he’s a favorite son
                     Love reaches deeper than tears ever run
                     Before he was born, his unique heart
                     Was fashioned in the mural of creation art
                     He’s a favorite one, in spite of all we’ve done
                     Oh---Oh, favorite one

               Working two jobs ends never seem to meet
               She often goes hungry so her babies can eat
               Her fatherless son wears torn clothes to school
               Where making fun of him's the only golden rule

                     She doesn’t know she’s a favorite daughter
                     That someone wants to help her walk on water
                     We’ve destroyed her faith, treated her with scorn
                     And made her long regret the day she was ever born
                     She’s a favorite one, in spite of all we’ve done
                     Oh---Oh, favorite one

               In this fool's gold rush of greed's deception game
               The way we treat each other is a dirty rotten shame

                     And we have no idea we’re a favorite one
                     Loved before the dawn of a stained creation
                     What goes around comes back to haunt our children
                     Generations blinded by generations' sin
                     We’re a favorite one, in spite of all we’ve done
                     Oh---Oh, favorite one
                     Oh---Oh, favorite one
                     Oh---Oh, favorite one

               He walks all alone by the railroad tracks
               Carryin' what he owns in a couple of sacks * **

What manner of nation would use half of the world's resources, harbor much of the world's wealth, contain a large percentageof the world's educated elite, continue to build some of the world's most expensive (and entirely worthless) religious edifices, provide unwarranted tax breaks for the extremely wealthy top 1% of the population and an entertainment industry which routinely spends over one hundred million dollars to create meaningless motion picture drivel, claim to have the preferred form of government for the entire planet and to stand for truth and justice. . . and yet look the other way as impoverished homeless war veterans, senior citizen's and children are forced to sleep in cardboard boxes, in back alleyways, under bridges, in city parks and on city sidewalks?  Will the country which Samuel Clemens referred to as the "land of bibles" go down in history as the one nation beyond all others, that devolved into an utter profane insult to the Creator of the universe?

*FootNote:  "Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom:  She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy." Ezekiel 16:49.  See also Fleeing Sodom for more details.

**FootNote II:  Many modern intellectuals and liberal activists do not believe that the Creator will come down hard on a nation that does not make a concerted effort to help the sick and poor.  People who vainly imagine that there is no Creator in control who does to nations as they do unto their own are even more insane than the current Bush Junior administration and the Christian Coalition combined (good luck).
