there is little true poverty
left in america. right?

the 99% have electricity,
clean water, indoor plumbing
and a fridge full

of processed "food."
(it's all good.) except for
the hole in our collective
american soul, of course,
which explains our corn-fed,
over-stuffed corpus maximus.

(what is wrong with us?)
for better or for worse

we are an unwed mess
of oversexed dilettantes (at best),
or churched-up philistines
wielding Ayn Rand philosophies (no less).

it doesn't take religion
to enter the kingdom.
and actions libel the bible
more effectively than blasphemy.

why not spend our free
speech compassionately? maybe
we could love our way
out of poverty.
