walled mart

a hundred years of inbreeding
will get you this:
the waddling, drooling masses,
sucking down Coca-Cola
and chili dogs,
buying clothes that will last for
just as short a time
as the pobrecitos
who stitched them
in a faraway dark cavern,
filled with sewing needles,
and desperation;
America's big fat ass
still plops down with an
on the tiny third-world stool
that only has two good legs:

land of opportunity,
