The American Way MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   The toothpick shaped man

in the brown leisure suit

told us not

to whistle, dance, or yodel,

and I think this is America,

and I can yodel if I want to.

I sit back, in the small projection room

to relearn the story of JFK's life

for the tenth time

and debate if I should

ask about Marilyn.

An old TV and blender,

Campaign posters scream

Kennedy for President.

The water outside,

so peaceful and calm -

Rough breaks getting closer.

Jackie smiles at me

through tired eyes,

as always a lady.

When did she get to yodel?
