Title: America America
Post by: Rootsie on July 25, 2003, 07:33:19 PM
America America Does not love ideas
O no America does not love ideas.
America does not like to be sober. Not much.
America loves to leap before America looks.
America just cannot sit still.
America hates history, hates to be reminded †
That causes have effects.
America cannot abide those who observe that her chickens
Have come home to roost.
America will pay anything for the illusion of safety,
Yet America is still afraid and canít figure out why
But thatís an idea and like I said
America does not love ideas---
America busy anyways fixin her makeup.
She will sacrifice practically anything
Not to reflect, not to think long.
America is afraid of the dark.
After all America is the City on a Hill
The muscular might the brilliant thrusting light
Of a distant Deity
And America insists there is no downside to any of this
Of this America.
America donít need to play by anyoneís rules,
America is America after all.
America says America loves freedom
While giving away as much of it as possible
As quick as possible. Freedom- But nobody feels free
Because there is much, much America refuses to see
America is quick to anger, impatient, and unkind.
America gives no consideration to the seventh generation.
America loves gas-gulping cars
Dehumanized sex and bling.
America loves varaiation after variation
Of the same old f*****g thing.
America loves distractions and diversions of all kinds
Cuz America canít stand her own mind.

250 million faces
you know 'em all
250 million phallus
broke it off in
bruised you crawl

two fingers kissed, to the sky
I an I
