Damsel in Distress

“Under her robes, she’s French and naked.”
—Bill Murray, comedian, speaking of Lady Liberty.

When I took a peek, I saw her getting liposuction,
laser-guided beauty treatments, and silicon-implants,
nip, tuck, nip, tuck….
(the sounds of budget-cutting)

America the Beautiful!
She’s all incorporated.
From sea to shining sea,
the Koch Bros. and Halliburton are fracking the Motherland!
(And Venoco is doing it too?)

Mother frackers!

Money, money, allelujah!
The emp’ror wears no clothes.
(And he and his homies, the “good ‘ol boys” gang, need more Viagra)
What’s up, WikiLeaks?
