The Corner of Reality and Mine
I'm from the land of getting over,
where every child
has the moral courage
to take the last cookie.
I'm from the land of the 2 a.m. talk show,
where UFOs are identified
by their star of origin.
I'm from the land of the mercantilist revival,
where fiduciary responsibility
is the only respectable virtue.
I'm from the land of domesticated news,
where if it didn't happen to us,
it didn't happen.
I'm from the land of real choices,
where what I chose to believe
I'm from the land of zero sum,
where there are many losers,
but only one winner.
So why don't you quit now.
