Americana destruction poetry writing

the bigger bomb

this isn't happiness

i blame

the self esteem movement

of the 1970’s

for our loss of humility

me-monster generations

of inflated egos

with honorable mention ribbons

butterfly blinking their vapid eyes

this is america

we’re more concerned

with the packaging

than the contents

of our






watch a super bowl half time show

to learn

why other countries hate us

but what more

can we expect

from a country founded

on the impossible

a world to colonize

an ocean away

puritans turned pentecostals


who invented

the bigger bomb

committing genocide

legislating slavery

as they handle snakes

solicit our vote

and speak in tongues
