Remember how peaceful and pretty it was

Remember how peaceful and pretty it was?

When American jobs leave the country,
the country leaves America.
So few young people left in small towns
to build a future.
Even the graveyards are dying.
People are migrating,
because there are no jobs.
American corporate greed to maximize
their profits has put the nail in the coffin,
and that coffin will be buried a long way
from home.
