delusion kills the dictionary

“delusion kills the dictionary”

in our delusional

child abuse
is hailed
as good parenting

is shrugged off
as the price of earning a profit

is obstinately referred to

and calories
don’t exist.

in our delusional
we don’t need no dictionary
we don’t need to learn English

we just make up the words
and definitions
as we go along.

so fuck abusive
fuck neglect
fuck money-hungry

we’re perfect parents
we’re perfect citizens
and we demand
perfect children
and the perfect
American Dream.

we’ve earned it.
give it to us
