America, the Beautiful embarrassment

1st amendment atrocities
Secondary nature

Pound for pound
They scream above holy lungs
Of righteous contradictions

As humanity continues to dry-hump “social” media,
Their sedentary psychiatrist

Judgmental lip smacks
Chapped from the arrogant vowels
They spit
Another syllabic lyric
Within our home of the “free”

Our 50 stars become 50 irrational assault rifles
In order to become bullet proofed
From infantile validation

We embrace rusty excavators
Crushing on Bones wearing red sweaters & silky moustaches

While MBAs & Bachelor Degrees
Fight in Spartan-tempered mouth-offs
If a dress is blue or gray

Donkeys & Elephants become consensual orgies
In the name of desperate prayers
But, neither will raise taxes in the name of God

For church & state are separate
Until dollar-store woven baskets made in China swoop in
During Sunday mas(k)s

Stairways to our imaginary heaven,
Its railing removed by forced epiphanies,
Replaced by “angelic” archways
Made of Kardashian silicone
And rose-tinted ascension

Yes, we can.
Yes, we did.
Yes, we fell.

We. Must. Change.

    Your style of writing is perfect for the message here... you've nailed this. Especially the last three words - powerful. Hope you are well, Drake.
