I HAVE NOT YET BEGUN TO DEAL // SUPER BOWL SUNDAY

millennial renderings of patriotic protestations


i.

We hold these 

             truths to be 

                    selfie-evident, 

that all men 

           are created with

                           #nofilter, 

but we 

               can change the world 

so it’s got,

                 like,

                       a really great 

vignette effect 

           no matter what 

                                 the light 

          was like.


ii.

Give me liberty 

                         or give me 

whatever comes 

                     after liberty, 

because I can totally 

                                  wait this out.

I’ll go to the bodega, 

                   buy me some time.


iii.

           Ask not what 

                                your country can do for you, 

ask what 

             it would take 

for your country 

                       to actually 

                                start doing it.


iv.

I regret 

           that I have but 

one life to lose 

                       for my country because 

these corp-lords are 

                                    killing me, man, 

but TBH

           I could keep losing 

lives on infinite loop. 

                                         TBH I loved 

getting sunburned, 

                    I miss my childhood pets,

I never learned 

                  how to tell

                                    trees apart.

I just want to ride 

                            my bike home 

and mean it.

                                  10/10 

would live again,

                                     every time.
