Poem Of The Day:

You Americans

  

You may use the term

- “You Americans”

if you like

 

But I must tell you

the credibility of your logic

decreases by half

 

Like when I hear the unevolved say

-       “You people”

 

Substitute

your country’s name

your heritage name

or

your sex

in the sentence

 

“You Africans always…”

“You Chinese just think you’re…”

“You women can’t stop…”

 

However if it rings

 

“You Americans always…are so hospitable.”

“You Americans are just…hilarious.”

“You Americans can’t…keep making me laugh like this.”

 

Then continue starting sentences with

- “You Americans”

 

But if you are sour inside

And want to make a global point

Run the sentence in your head first

Think and be patient with what you want to express

 

Then maybe your logic will be heard

And not dismissed

by the ancient art of profiling

Making your credibility increase by half

 

Or

maybe you just shouldn’t drink so much in public
