Patriotic Wedding

flags flying
fourth of July
national anthem
Marine Corps Hymn
and foot stomping
to cotton eyed Joe
cotton eyed
GI
cup of Joe to stay awake
did you try the cake?
I don’t want it
and I don’t want to eat it
José
can you see
a way out of this misery?

I think I can
I think I can

Lets go back
to Iraq
Hurry up and wait
and pack
but for now
don’t be late
and bring a date
to the patriotic wedding

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel.
