America It's You

Some things are too good to be true
I think maybe America that's you

you are no conspiracy, true 
just a good idea failing you 
in execution every bloody day 
on streets and in your schools

there's a war in store 
because American war 
is the thought of you
the right to bear arms 
will be the death of you
in the food aisle 

stuffed to white teeth with black bullets
bulging to the eyes with poison apple pies

drone cloud skies wide 
eyes plenty surprised
at the feeding hand raised to strike
broad shoulders down to slopes
slipping, down, punch drunk dream
hugging the ropes
