America Doesn’t Exist

America doesn’t exist
If you think that you live there
Guess what, you’ve been tricked
You’re not even thinking,
You’re only believing
In borders, and orders
That blossom from myth
That is, from delusion, or nonsense
Or illness, contagious, indeed
And violent, yes
But not at all real, or true
For falsehoods can’t ever be true.
The New World isn’t new, not yet.
