America: An ideal that's less than ideal.
Maybe all ideals are less than ideal,
Except those that have never been realized.
Reason is a house that's never been lived in,
In which the furnishings are always new.
Children have never tested the bedsprings or pillows.
Adults have never soiled the backsplash with their greed and passion.
