(March 30,1987 / Buffalo, New York)

American Idle

An excuse
Getting through
Kick around your leeway

An idea
Overdue
Work-shy with hunger pains

Wear out your dunce's cap
Wear out your pocket flaps
But don't wear out your mind
Because you can't have mine

American Idle
Overfill your seidel
'Cause excess is romance
And everyone's convinced

Channel-surfing
Devil's food
Kick around your leeway

Snake oil rigged
Fate is sealed
Work-shy with stomach pains

Wear out your dunce's cap
Wear out your pocket flaps
But don't wear out your mind
Because you can't have mine

American Idle
Overfill your seidel
'Cause excess is romance
And everyone's convinced

An enjoyably sarcastic piece with a strong message to all the masses of futile worshippers of these idols who just won't get done the big jobs yet left to be done, such as abolishing money, unless the very American idle finally will make a move for changes
