America, We Love You

5 Jul

“America, we love you as the child loves the father who 
sits slobbering in his corner eating flies and spiders.” 
-Paul Kantner 

I’ve been living in Eddy County for nineteen years
I’ve been living in Carlsbad since 1998

And I haven’t been out of town since 2008

No, I don’t identify with them
I hate them with a great passion

I am here to bear witness
And to become strong

And I’ve gotten so strong
That it’s just about killing me.
