After Reading Stanley Fish (How to Save Amerika)

IMG_1556

There’s nothing wrong with Amerika
Our leader is a Strawberry Bearer 
Proposing a thousand point argument to the bathroom mirror
And fine we complain of the winter cold and summer heat
Autumn is beautiful though and there’s nothing wrong with Amerika
When leaves fall and windows break and babies cry 
From no milk or when the honey bees bark east from Alachua 
Past the Palm Coast reed and into the ocean
The hive’s leader barren like lightning strike 
Will do what she has trained to do die and try again
There’s nothing wrong with Amerika.
