poem of the day 06.07.10

little boys

little boys act
so tough
but they ain’t shit

little boys
with their
corporate ghetto swagger
and peanut brains

i’d like to see them
wrestle with proust

little boys
who hang on street corners
grabbing their small nut sacks
like retarded monkeys
with an itch

little boys
who’ve never had
love
who masturbate
into their underwear

these little boys
who’ll never
become men
not even in the smallest
sense of the word

these little boys
little american boys
thumping to a soundtrack
of video violence
and rap

dumb
dumb
dumb

and down with them
goes your motherfucking
nation.
