We lay watch dogs down into
The center of society
Anticipating explosions in the horizon
Refusing to acknowledge the bomb
Clutched firmly in our sweaty hands
Are so busy focusing
			Outside of the looking glass
Preening our feathers and cocking our guns
What exactly are we looking for?

Peering past the homeless, the children
Illiterate people squinting past the stop signs
The hustlers, babies in gangster uniforms
Beaches receding like the hairline on the Statue of Liberty
Our way of thinking
Is getting old

Textbooks used as decorations
Knowledge chokes on itself
Masters dripping profanity
From the urban streets
College board refuses to look past
Test scores and Congress
The abilities to suspend
Stereos blast unseemly
That we are clamoring to fulfill 

America invented the business of 
Selling and buying souls
Creating a Monster
The country of vanity and self-inflated egos

Unable to stop ourselves
From creating our own
