lyrics

Mrs. Underwood, by Manisha Shahane
She sits on the front porch; with her hand, she waves a fan. Sammy and James are walking home from school and, when they pass by, they ask, “Mrs. Underwood, do you have some lemonade? Mrs. Underwood, did you bake some brownies or a cake? It’s hot outside and we’re thirsty and tired. Can we come in for a break?” Sammy and James are out at sea on a naval battleship, where five-minute showers are just enough to wash the soap off of their skin. They know that twelve miles away, on the shores of Country X, the people living there have four minutes less. And for those children there’s no Mrs. Underwood—no one to whom they can confess that they’re thirsty and tired. <Chorus> On the front steps of America’s dream, sit shadows of the past. The windows stare onto empty streets, where the dreams are fading fast. <Chorus>
