American Pie

American Pie
your slices are shrinking
to dietary size

American Dreams
you seem to be wisps
in insomnia

American people
you seem to be stunned
reaching for guns

American leaders
you glide down the path
of least resistance

American heroes
you stand atop the summits
of endorsements

American Lies
your drumbeats are shattering
your soul
