I'll give you some machine gun
feedback, but
I don't believe in
terrorvision, so
my opinion
won't matter.
The world was experiencing
a disarmament
crisis
(in Iraq) perhaps
this is why I am so New
England, so
impartial to air
raids and warning shots,
having been born into
a place with diet Wonder
Bread and gravy rations.
Sorry if you prefer to hear
a few more witty lines
about liberalism but
my purpose is to strike
a nerve.
And while I was flaunting
my brand new
whiter-than-whiteness
the sun was born.
But before you rejoice in
life and mourn
the death of a particular
Mexican painter
(91 years) I want an
instant replay revealing
the fathers and ex-
hippies that have lived
through more traumas
than most of you
lame
brains.
This profane B-
side is an apology
because the sun set at
8:25
p.m.
and the moon was
only a
waxing gibbous.
