doug draime

i would
doug draime

I would shoot a bullet through
the heart of America,
but it’s already dead

I would set aflame the Bill of Rights,
the Constitution, and Jefferson’s
glorious Declaration of
but they’ve already
been torched.

The greasy scum of the ashes
covering the windows of
our betrayed souls, and blocking
out the sun.
