Reverse Gentrification

mr. fish

Thanks for the wild turkey and the Passenger Pigeons, destined to be shit out through wholesome American guts. Thanks for a Continent to despoil and poison Thanks for Indians to provide a modicum of challenge and danger Thanks for vast herds of bison to kill and skin, leaving the carcasses to rot - Thanks for bounties on wolves and coyotes Thanks for the AMERICAN DREAM to vulgarize and falsify until the bare lies shine through Thanks for the KKK, for n**ger-killing lawmen feeling their notches, for decent church-going women with their mean, pinched, bitter, evil faces Thanks for "Kill a Queer for Christ" stickers Thanks for laboratory AIDS Thanks for Prohibition and the War Against Drugs Thanks for a country where nobody is allowed to mind his own business Thanks for a nation of finks yes, thanks for all the memories... all right, let's see your arms... you always were a headache and you always were a bore Thanks for the last and greatest betrayal of the last and greatest of human dreams.

William S. Burroughs, (from "A Thanksgiving Prayer," 1988)
