"American Minds" by Eric Wayne Flynn

"American Minds"

Trapped

Bruised

Confused

Competing

Paralyzed from the neck up

Victims of a great boom

Fifty states, one padded room

Thirty years in a fugue

Disassociated from our past

Will we ever wake?

Exhausted and uninspired

We hit snooze

      Thanks to Jan, Jane and Frank for the visit and commentary. Flattered from praise.
