# 555: george w. bush

hacking memes     okay
gave up the ruddyred liquor
couldn’t control the leaside road
gave up too slavering 60’s pipedreams
follow: boots to shins shirts three quarter
the texan way     what’s under as important
as what’s on top
follow me up from toe to tonguetip
camerastop to describe
each pitstop to armpits
easier than leaders’ names
lioncourage of my face can’t be aped
the rest is all in the mind.
him     crawfished stiff
stiffing the world
I won’t make do with symbolic
brains homes hearts
balloondrifting & shoeclicking
believe me folks     when I get to oz
I’m going to look inside that smoked machine
till I find the real thing
