self reflections

i like to sit out back,
smoke cigarettes and drink beer
while listening to simon and garfunkel
sing about america

i'm not a communist or anything,
but when i was in high school
i wanted to move to china

it's kind of fucked up, isn't it?

yeah, i'm anti-war,
a total beatnik,
a south hating southerner,
rejecting childhood customs
only to be drawn back
to childhood issues

i meditate on peace
but i have a violent side too -
i'm an enigma, a contradiction
a hypocrite

it's kind of fucked up, isn't it?

i'm not a communist or anything,
personally, i think government
is fucking ridiculous

Spoken and written with the thoughts of a questioning person. May you always be visited by these questions. The world needs more of you and your thoughts.
