"All is fair in love and war"
Twas said to me by mouth that bore,
That bore two piercings, one per lip,
Which got in the way as he took a sip,
A sip of a tall, cool Coors Light,
Which he drank right after he took a bite,
A bite of his burger, tasty I'll bet,
Which he ate between puffs of his cigarette,
His cigarette which he sucked and spewed,
Some smoke and a familiar smell issued,
A pause and an original thought ensued,
This man was America, freedoms imbued,
This man was America, morals construed.

Creative! I laughed at this, but it is something the world is coming to.  "America" isn't what we make it out to be, no matter how amazing it can be.
