American De-MOCK-cracy

by K. S. McNeil

 What is the American Dream? It ain't all what it seems. 
It's not for me pushes me to be something I can never be.
isn't it great the land of the free beautiful a de-Mock-racy.
daycare. latchkey kid. afterschool programs. day camp. education minus analytical thought.
blond hair, long overflowing. blue eyes, 2.5 kids, 5 pounds underweight. 
5 feet four, a husband, 2000 square foot house, white picket fence, dog, cat
savings, family vacation, just enough money to do some things 
not enough to stop working for 30 plus years
plastic surgery to look 35. divorce. younger man. cadillac seville. put kids in the will.
Retire and die broke. 401 K stolen. broken dreams. rocking chair of regrets.
