Tempered orange, vertebrae intact, mighty marble mother,
Coming home was worthwhile, coming home was - ... legendarily so
Iridescent, looming, like a little cottonmouth, little carry-on
Flying red flags against white license, set serial codes, the core
Reeling beyond rainbow cataracts, milky, subtle and sweet
A myriad of premarital plebians with hunting hounds, here to break the mass,
Distribute the weight, cross-pollinate the fruits of their labor and dig trenches
Dental plaque! Sportsmanship!
Earn, earning, earned, and modern - so modern, so relevant, so honest
So independently wealthy and well-endowed were we, where it was
When we were and where it went, fairly lightly and limberly we'd lurch
So independently lonely and cast out were we, then and now, so low
But can we count the days 'til reformation? Can we document? Justice?
Beating the dust from an antique curtain of specters, wildly salivating
For the Fatherland, like a theme park, like poaching exotic game
Here on the border, the post-idiot, the lion laid parallel to flies
