Optimism

Rusty Singleton, Kasilof

So consistently problematic

These machines of green heard 'round the world

Saluting the stripes they wear

on the face of Arrogance

Sheltered underneath the miles of yardage

As other less fortunates

Wash their clothes in apple cider

Oblivious to the real goings-on

Electric eels electing eccentric eagles

Fabricating electronic lies

of irrefutable truth

Sounding pleasing to their ears

Upon the mantle of conformity

Neon babysitters

Creating battering rams

Smashing the pumpkins

of their Ancestors

Gleefully cheering on

The mountain refuses to budge

Despite the warnings offered by

Various agencies in pink

Pay no heed to this nonsense

It'll all be over soon

Wait, who are you?
