Poem About Domestic Terrorism for the Lead Singer of Nickelback to Recite (for d. boon)

Baseball caps would shake their heads
Against this situation,
A hopeless situation …

… of conspiracies committed against phallic architecture
… of frazzled stewardesses burnt up like Salem witches
… of cargo that never arrives at its intended destination

This could be
One of our songs

This is new domestic violence
For the brotherhood of CD buyers
Only repackaged into
Supposedly innovative arena rock
That cements our own preconceived notions
Of male versus female
Of penis versus vagina
Of sperm versus egg

This could be a new direction
Towards yet another platinum record

Yes, indeed
This could be
One of our songs
