AMERICA, A MONSTERING HORROR..."We live in two Americas"Chris Hedges has declared,But while he makes a careful caseI know which one´s preferred."America the Illiterate"With endless waves of boredom,Not only inconsiderateAre people turning more dumb?Ah, Chris! so we are losing ground,Our numbers fast diminishOf who would read--a change profoundTo see a culture finish.Yes, these "core values" you expressOf our societyDevolve to something meaninglessTo the majority.Unless our forces can retrenchOf those who seek the truth,Not brands sold by a comely wenchIn crafted image smooth--So we must face an awful lossOr silently bear witnessAs words admonishing we tossTo ears and brains sans fitness.The Mind in this AmericaIs fast becoming mush--To our compatriots I call Whoa!And question, What´s the rush.Your images belie the truth,And render substance false:Though you may seek eternal youthIt´s childishness befalls.Chris, keep the secret to ourselves.They scurry into mereIrrelevance, as pixies, elvesScatter their stardust drear.Yet we who love the written wordOr crisp articulation--Rational logic--have preferredThe truer, if minor, nation..
Well done! Most creative comment I've ever gotten on this blog.
