AMERICA INC ©

Hello America, come on in.

You have mud on your shoes, don’t bring that in here.

See my TV nice and big huh?

Would you like to sit on the sofa, couch, futon, Lazy Boy ™?

Never mind, no time to sit around here

just keep standing there till your knees give out.

But don’t worry, you can always sit and Relax™.

Oh don’t mind the noise.

The youth is outside making a Ruckus™,

but they will pass by soon.

They’re coming over tomorrow.

I’ve never been much of a host,

I have nothing for you today.

But maybe tomorrow,

or the next day,

or the next.

Do you really think

that everything will change

tomorrow,

or the next day,

or the next?

Get out now,

get out then,

get out and join

the Ruckus™.

But I will see you tomorrow, and the next day, and the next.
