emotional Poem poetorial for critical analysis, critical thinking, against positive thinking A sharp-witted knockdown of America’s love affair with positive thinking and an urgent call for a new commitment to realism Americans are a “positive” people—cheerful, optimistic, and upbeat: this is our reputation as well as our self-image. But more than a temperament, being positive, we are told, is the key to success and prosperity. In this utterly original take on the American frame of mind, that Barbara Ehrenreich traces the strange career of our sunny outlook from its origins

Poem: Gang of One Two Four

Poem: Gang of One Two Four <<< link

There is the door it opens and closes
Joey Ramone was a pill popping Moses,
Dee Dee was a freak,

Don't try fuckin' me,
I have a blade up my sleeves,

balling in the bath room,
pissing on the walls,
the girls pass out,
gagging on their balls,

drink some more beer, baby,
long hair, short hair, skinned alive,
who the fuck cares!
we all fuckin die,

hanging on a back street,

walking to the store,
bumming change from zombies,
"they don't have to share"

get in line, do your time,
grand ma sucks she always lies,

we all fucking die,
bleeding fingers sliding on guitars,
reverb mother mothers shaking in the halls

you're fucking blind, you suck you die,
same fucking shit, 69, 74, 2009,
turn up the volume,
turn lights down low,

Fuck you your sex, your drugs and rock and roll,
Fuck your god and religion too,
Fuck your art your business, your words,
Fuck your EMO, Fucked your baby girl too,
Fucked your grandma, Fucked your aunt,
Fuck myself like none of you can.
