amerikkka in a handbasket

16 Mar

this country is fucked
but none of the people who matter know it
they’re still clinging to some sales pitch
they were handed down by their parents
and their parents’ parents
fed into their throats by Sterling Cooper
and the entire Madison Avenue clan
after the second war
this country is fucked
by career politicians
by preachers
by television commentators
by bankers
by corporations
by fear
by material comfort
by diagnoses of disorder
by medication
by television
by narcissism
by microwave hot pockets
this country is fucked
by yuppies yippies rep ties and ripped jeans alike
this country is a marketing campaign
sold overseas in exchange for cheap manual labour
and sold to us in exchange for everything else that is left over
this country is destabilized by mis-information
and repetition disseminated via media
this country is anti-academic
anti-rational
anti-erudite
sectarian
illogical
racist
the revolution will be televised
it will be sponsored by Monsanto
halftime show without malfunctions
and finger food served throughout the program
by McDonald’s
