Among the recurring themes that make up this website you will find history-heavy stuff like yearbooks, college football year-by-year reviews and library book entries. Rarely do I have cause to post here anything along the lines of patriotism, individualism or consumerism.
Today I have the chance to counter that - not by adding google ads or a personal bio to the site- but with a poem that, in my eyes, soundly describes modern America.
You don't have to purchase the whole book, but I suggest you do.
You don't have to like the poem, either.
The one thing I am counting on today is that my readers do everything they can to make their own brand of American noise. That is, to me, the best sound in the world.
Happy Independence Day.
