This America that sleeps all day and night
This America that got Robin Hood backward
This America that asks, “What class war?”
This America that carries constant buzzing voices in its pockets
This America whose mantra is seek and destroy
This America that stamps out whole brown villages with a remote control
This America that seeks heaven but doesn’t see that heaven is in its own backyard
This America that fracks itself into future nothing
This America that mocks the lunatics of the East from a mad house
This America that thinks legal means just
This America that breaks its own laws
This America that killed Sacco and Venzetti
This America that’s going to do the same to Snowden
This America that frees killers and imprisons heroes
This America that lies to its children
This America that eavesdrops on its children’s thoughts and dreams
This America that’s paralyzed in apathy
This America that stole black angels from another world to do its dirty work
This America that thought affirmative action a sufficient apology
This America that gives bibles to starving children
This America that is governed by men with dollar signs for hearts
This America that lobbies its own delight
This America that lets McCarthy run the State Dept. posthumously
This America that conspires with newsroom zombies
This America that doesn’t take your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free
This America that tells my sister she’s fat with a billboard
This America that throws a rosary chain over her ovaries
This America that enslaved common sense
This America that tells me to sit down, shut up, and do what I’m told
