We Americans

We Americans are a sorry lot

Perpetuating war foreknown as lost
Braving selloffs oblivious to cost

Who among us neither borrowed nor bought?
Regardless, time is nigh we cleared the rot!

We Americans are a hearty lot.

I wrote that little rhyme in early 2007. it was meant to be part of a larger work about a post-bubble politician with an anarcho-populist bent. but I'm lazy, so of course I never did much more with it. then it wasn't long before the Ron Paul campaign started and us reluctant activists did what we could. it's unfortunate how badly the RP campaign was mis-managed, but that's water under the bridge now.
