random thoughts from venting, a poem

Yesterday I was venting about all the uproar with tax cuts and budget cuts and government program cuts, and this idea kinda grew out of that. It's just meant to be read for now....discuss if u will....here it goes, enjoy? *shrug*:

I’d like to have a no-holds-barred discussion
I am a brown-skinned United States-ian
I am called African American
Africa is a continent to which I have never been
And truthfully,
America is a couple of continents which I have never explored
United States is my country of origin
That is only united in theory
I suppose my country is quite hypocritical in its name
No, there is no civil war with guns
But we fight each other with money, stocks and bonds
We fight each other with racism, sexism, and classism, ammunition of hate
The only time we are united is in between bars of the ♪♫ 50 Niffty United States ♪♫
But go behind bars
You will find a different story
Lets raise the bar and see who can jump it or gets stuck in limbo
Maybe if we go to the bars
We can forget
Libations will be the lotus to make us all closer
If this is proven to drive somebody to drinking
Maybe one of ya’ll can go pass the bar to defend me
Or better yet prosecute me
For murdering with the truth
I’d rather be found guilty
