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

food

entertainment

government

character

conscience

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

politicians

who invented

the bigger bomb

committing genocide

legislating slavery

as they handle snakes

solicit our vote

and speak in tongues
