Alarm clock screams.

You’re awake, mind rushing.

A happy hand silences the noise, and you say,

“Who can I fuck with today?”

Because you don’t have anything better to do–

like say, your job. You have decent employment that pays

your bills, and offers health insurance at a reasonable rate.

It’s still cool to bash Obama, so you make sure

to say something anti to your white liberal co-worker–just make sure

the blacks don’t hear–you’re opinionated, but you’re a pussy, too.

Or maybe you’re not–but you probably are–

so you’ll spout off only to your fellow Caucasians–

because fuck the Asians, too. And anyone else not derived from Smith.

Muslims are the devil incarnate. Planned Parenthood is managed by the Witches of Salem. Gays are depraved. Christianity is the only way–fuck the Jews. But don’t fuck the Jews so badly that Israel can’t fuck the Palestinians TO DEATH with the American dollar.

I’m a real American, damn it. I believe that the Constitution was designed and signed by Christians. Even though most of our founding fathers denounced organized religion, I know America was built upon the foundation of Christianity. So of course our schools should teach Christian values, even though Christianity is just another religion built upon the myths of Egyptian lore.
