Average American

I wish life was about drinking iced tea 
mixed with lemonade 
instead of trying to make that pay grade 
in this life full of trade  
work until our hair turns grey 
who has the right to say 
when you retire and how to spend your funds 
not to have fun like you should on any day 
in disgust we look away  
but as an American what do we portray 
is that we get high like Scooby, 
you can get shot at a school or a movie, 
because we are seen equipping a digital uzi or a ak47 
except in this real life there is no reset button 
when you get to hell or heaven. -TA
