State of the Union

I won the lottery a long time ago
but because I do not memorize history
I can not delicately allude to a character,
empire, romance, or era to prove me

I am rich. I am cinde-fucking-rella
and am only being crass because
we are all vulgar in our honesty
as often as we are crude in our ignorance

Something else we all have in common
Our open witnessing of our ability to
meet opposition with absolute disregard
to politeness or formalities

I wonder what it is like for you
afraid to love and afraid of hate
but you won the lottery too
Welcome to Earth. We are the meek
