American Dream

"Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens." - Carl Jung

Plastic cover,
wasteful wrapping,
skimpy dresses,
people scrapping.

American dream, American heart.
Dreams are not reality,
not from the start.

Fast food,
symbolic eagles,
pollution everywhere,
presidential regals.

American dream, American eyes.
Our people are dying,
do you care that we cry?

High flying flag,
stars abound,
women are objects,
the best ones around.

On the outside, shiny, fake, a dream.
On the inside, rotting, shot up at the seams.

Wake up,
you are living a death.
Last words to america,
as you draw your last breath.
