Going Rogue - Poem by Denis Kucharski

I went rogue today
And saw a man reading it
Inside the courthouse
With 70's parted hair
A NASCAR shirt
And canvas tennis shoes

He had a dull, vacuous look on his face
I didn't know whether it was from the reading
Or whether this caused him to read it

Either way, America is in deep trouble
When the brand of the day
Is idiocy, and the cake of the day
Is ignorance,
And the flavor of the month
Is a moose-hunting moron
Dedicated to crushing
All compassion and love
For the sake of profit

In this strange, strange land of mediocrity
Where being smart makes you queer
And embracing hate
Is the joy of the day

I got tea bagged at the party
By an angry old man
Carrying a sign which read
'Keep your government hands off my Medicare'

I feel like going rogue
To Sweden, away from these strange cowboys
Who aren't aware
That the party is over
And the American Dream is long gone

Bludgeoned and buried
By 30 years of Reagan
Not one year of Obama
