Bastardized English

Brainwashed by the bastardized english
I was taught since birth
I would so love to wrap myself
In dark metaphors
Like a warm blanket covering my raw pain
Not showing where it hurts.

Compelled to write but like a blunt instrument
The American language just put's it all out there
Naked left to stand alone
Like a bare tree bereft of her leaves
Shaken by the machine that cranks out
Defecated bile from it's ego maniacal guts. 

I love America but I feel the melting pot
Bled my european heritage dry
With the need to fit
I find most people boring
Without point or argument
I hate American t.v. it's mostly garbage
Stuffed down my throat I vomit.

I love learning about history, art
There are still some beautiful cultures here
That refused to be melted and twisted like a ball of colorful wax
Refused to be turned into that sickly army green
They have retained who they are, I wish that was me.

My brain like a computer
Programmed on auto pilot
I think and speak as i've seen
I need to embrace my heritage
Love America but learn some culture.

Metaphors, imagery
Bring the reader in I will persist
In learning this talent
Cause my brain to travel routes unexplored  
Read the classics, learn to create some art.
