A Modest Inquiry: America, 2012

If the poem AMERICA by Alan Ginsberg had been written today, how would it sound?.....

America it's them bad Republicans.

Them Republicans them Republicans and them Tea-Partiers. And them Republicans.

The Republican wants to eat us alive. The Republican's power mad. She wants to take our hybrids and electrics from out our garages.

Her wants to redistrict Chicago. Her needs a Red State Reader's Digest. her wants our union auto plants in Michigan. Him big bureaucracy ruinning our birthcontrol.

That no good. Ugh. Him makes poor blacks do homework. Him need big black Nissans.

Hah. Her make us all work eight hours a day. Help.

America this is quite serious.

America this is the impression I get from looking in the television set. America is this correct?

I'd better get right down to the job.

It's true I don't want to join the Army or turn lathes in precision parts factories, I'm nearsighted and quite sane anyway.

America I'm putting my straight shoulder to the wheel.....
