American Appetite

American Appetite

Narrow are the
          Base Paths
          Our
          Children
          Race
          Around.
Slender are the
          Willows
          That
          Shade
          Our
          Gurgling
          Creeks.
Meagre is our
          Forgiveness
          For
          Apologies
          Unmade.
Precarious is the
          Tightrope
          Our
          Health
          Balances
          Upon.
Paltry is our
          Patience
          For
         Hindrance
          In
          Commutes.
And Solid are the
          Laws
          Our
          Democracy
          Rests
          Upon.
But Wide as the Mississippi is our
          Capacity
          For
          Kindness,
          Generosity,
          And
          Pie.
