America

A new generation of young people

have exploded on America.


America stumbles blind

inferior and paranoid.


Suffering from anxieties, compulsions, obsessions,

and a neurotic neurosis.


Led by leaders who

suffer from mental disorders,


Endorsing:


disease, grief, misery, hysteria,

traumatic traumas.


America is having

an identity crisis.


Strangling herself

in her own vomit.

Ashe

I applaud the noble impulse of this poem, and find myself looking for (in the words of Sir Paul McCartney, from a 1990s solo effort) "hope of deliverance from the darkness that surrounds us."

Hey, if Larry's a Leninist and I'm a McCartneyist, maybe he and I should start a band. Hmmm...

Any attempt to rescue our society from barbarism will require that such people be defeated. It isn't clear that the rescue effort will succeed. As a Leninist, my inclination is to say, "Exterminate them," and move on. If you harbor sentimental thoughts about elections and "majority rule" (the outright theft of two of the last five presidential elections notwithstanding), good luck to you.

Well, it certainly is a battle between the forces of good and evil with many being deceived. But who is the true deceiver? Ashe, this poem may reflect your perception on things but I disagree with that dramatized and distorted perception. I live in America and traveled extensively all over the land from 2012 through 2015 in a used RV and have surveyed a lot of goings on that most don't see except through the manipulative media's eyes. I am not saying everything is a bed of roses for all Americans because it is not. But it is also not what your poem describes..But here is a little glimpse of the type of vulgarity you describe that is leading to America's downfall:

and what true ethical, moral American Constitutionalists believe summed up very well using Senator Collin's own recent words...

America is getting herself fixed. Trump is doing it. But Congress is the key, backed by an honest politically unbiased and competent Judiciary. Many good folks have been misguided and fooled. A RED SUNAMI is coming......because true Americans are pissed off.

Brilliant and with the brilliance of the Northern Star that told of the goodness to come. Your written expressions have always promoted my ability to think and reason beyond carnality does me well. Those who read this may not be able to preceive and most that do understand could be shy of courge in the face of blinding blemishes and tongues tied way past a flashing red light. The truth is the truth and the only thing that makes any lie sweeter is the company one shares while indulging for the sake of business as usual. America is being forced to grow up and so far this has been done by a new generation that have higher moral standards than their ancestors. God bless the truth and may God bless America. Thanks for the courage and strength to serve humble pie without the usual ice cream and blazing candles. Most respectfully yours.
