a national 911 call so to say
and how many lying lies have we the people been told
to increase that fear as if
the 45 minutes to a real mushroom cloud was not enough fear
then that fear was proved falsified intelligent information
to the biggest lethal crooks in the world today are those who falsify “facts”
how trite and false the sound of “as a matter of fact” as if
calling something a fact makes it a fact

instead of the medicinal benefits of Coca.
The best of America is Beautiful
but she is no longer a teenager
one might say, middle age, the question is
