delusion kills the dictionary

“delusion kills the dictionary”

in our delusional
community

child abuse
is hailed
as good parenting

neglect
is shrugged off
as the price of earning a profit

pain
is obstinately referred to
as
normal

and calories
don’t exist.

in our delusional
community
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
NOW.
