American Dream


.


Power ball, lotteries, sue the clothes


Off someone’s back


Take a second, third job even if it kills you


You family, friends, marriage


Gotta get rich quick


Damn Jones’ have an SUV


 


Jerry Springer’s on TV


Montel Williams close behind


Kings of Reality exploiting trash…


An industrial sized box of Tide,


Properly applied


Might bring needed sanity.


 


Let’s define, Mr. MacLuhan


The American Dream


Wal-Mart girls pose in Playboy


As if honest work’s not enough


 


Paris Hilton, claim to fame


Is a daddy richer than God


Presumes to show us what’s real


In a life made for magazines


 


Go back to bleaching blonde


And turning cocaine tricks, please.


 


Anything for a quick-earned buck


Can’t have that, at least try this


Grab yourself some cheap, unearned luck.


 


Once upon a time, before marketing


Was the medium to message


There was an American Dream
