Plane Speaking (includes the F-word)

In the land of running water
modern Indians use a faucet.
One time would resort to buckets
say:"how" now say: "fuck it!"
Buy up condos bye bye tipi
encased in concrete though get
weepy, thinking of plains life
and the bison, chiefs were heroes
not a-holes like Tyson. God knows
how today’s life's all planes
and trips to Disneyland. Deplaning
in sinfully costly trainers
as if to mock our sins.
Some may think of complaining
to the skies once lorded by eagles.
It's come to this once we were
reigning alone – thanks. Now
we're hyphenated Yanks.

Well presented as usual in a humorous (if somewhat sardonic) way that makes me smile.. love the pun "mock our sins." B.

And it takes an intelligent Brit to notice "mock our sins". Went right past me.....
