Three administrations at the helm steered the American lives. Clinton saw the American individual needing two jobs. W. Bush refused to save one American home as he put more and more Americans into uniforms abroad. Obama opened the floodgates to illegal and undocumented immigrants. Consequently, of America’s 120 million citizens, 90 million (ages sixteen and older) fell jobless. Ninety million were not in the labor force, as stated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (Department of Labor). These Americans were virtually locked out of the workforce. Slowly were their needs ignored as Americans. Congress and Court offered no hope. The Americans became weathered, and the individual citizen found himself all but lost in a sea of 180 million immigrants. Thus, this immigrant number has overgrown the American population. Since 2013, the weathered American is left to do the best he can with what little he has. In “In Poetry, Prose and Song,” the forgotten US individual seeks a slice of the American pie.
