America - 1984

A burgeoning colossus
under Reagan.
Glacial progress and
space-age destruction.
Fat defense cats
undermining peace
by war preparing.
Little children going hungry
while food warehouses
at the seams are bulging.
Toxins shocking
power plants rocking
(trees polluting? ha!)
Star Wars gleaming
small nations screaming.
