America 240 – Urban Hellville and Expressions LA

 

America 240 – 

Urban Hellville and Expressions LA

at the Studio City Public Library,

Studio City, California.

In Celebration of 240 years of US Independence.

America 240 Flag

  Another Anniversary Ending in the Remains of a Dream

America!

Exporting democracy

Yet condemned

To low voter turnout . . .

America!

Valuing education

Yet burdened

With functional illiteracy . . .

America!

The nosey grindstone

Only slows for squeaky wheels

And banking holidays . . .

America!

Where eating ham while

Wearing flip flops

Means Thanksgiving . . .

America!

Where freedom a la carte

Is family style

So dig in . . .

America!
