Not American
Barely North American

Ten thousand years of history
(but, hey, who’s counting anyway?)
dissolved and forgotten in just over five hundred

Hold on, man. Let me check my notes.
Two continents chock full of people
can be destroyed and gone unnoticed?

Are you kidding me?

Survival should be based on fairness, not fitness
And just remember that as three hundred million sing “This land is your land,”
we scream, “Basta ya!”

This country is still wet to the touch,
saturated with greed, conquest, and blood
conveniently stuffed under the rug.
This may be overdue: fuck you.
A different time? Well that can’t replace
the countless cultures that have been erased.

Established in 1492.
I’m not American.
