state of the union

pile the bullshit higher
looking like a dumpster fire
meant to inspire
it comes off like a funeral pyre

but some cheer
and come near
to letting the mask slip
during the ass kiss

its a stage managed affair
it’s a warning flare
it’s an i don’t care
but the pretense is there

it’s a divided crowd
it’s a brag out loud
it’s a why we’re proud
it’s a big black cloud
