i always leave a tip

it’s ok to speak a different

language at the

airport, the bus station or

in a taxi,

but not in a restaurant in america.

unless you live in san francisco,

they have menus there in all sort of languages.

everybody likes bob dylan for at least

one of his songs but no one understands

anything he’s singing.

people get pretty excited about religion in

america, agreeing to one nation under god.

then fight over which god

or how to say hallelujah?

politics have gotten people lynched,

castrated, or filthy rich in america.

sunshine is free and we hide it under

a blanket of grey shit.

my hypocrisy floats away like my

cigarette smoke.

free speech makes it impossible for me

to shut up.

until now.
