take another little piece

mr. bush’s war
killed the last living piece
of hunter s. thompson

i’ve learned those who give a damn
die faster
giving a damn is more deadly
than any religion, weapon, or dope

if what happens in vegas stays in vegas
then why is their only export cold sores

the other thing i know is
you have to get out of kentucky
for being from kentucky to matter

life is killing me
the ohio river is killing me
pop music is killing me
wild turkey is killing me
ignorance is killing me
the congress is killing me
capitalism is killing me

this poem is my only hope
