Americans

We are a restless bunch of rag-tag,
can't mind our own business,
pave over our neighbors if we can,
get ahead, sink or swim mother fuckers.

Take what we aren't given
Take what we don't need

Everything is rushed
Everything important

We design devices that,
as metaphors, function too well.

Treadmills. Perhaps
they're really a joke
on ourselves.

Seeking only wealth,
following boot-strap pulling,
ladder-climbing
horse-shit lies.
Get ahead.
Get ahead.
Get.
