Why are you still rooting for America?

I'm not rooting for American sports teams

This corrupt and wicked land

Corrupt banksters

And politicians

I separate myself

From this wicked land

He sits in front of the television

For hours each night

Don't you have better things to do

What a waste of time!!
weariness of the bones
entails that of the soul

each in itself
can be enough
to make you crave
a friendly touch
  a word of love

when both compound
and there is none
  of the above
your heart grows heavy
   as a leaden pound
sunshine goes pale
rain turns into a flood
your soul turns cold
   and shivers
with the absence
of a loving sound
