Texas Watch: 2015

I have a breaking news update, straight from the front lines!  Despite two weeks of occupation and super secret military drills, Texas is still an unoccupied State in the Union.  Apparently all the domestic Homeland Security operatives masquerading as basic military forces on maneuvers have been unable enforce martial law in the state despite their best efforts.  Failure has been attributed to the great food at Whataburger and the Austin music scene,  both of which have distracted the troops from their agenda of state subjugation.  Reporters on the scene have repeatedly asked when the troops will begin confiscating firearms.  Responses have been few but can generally be summed as, “”Yes, I’d like fries with that.”  Locals continue to be nonplussed.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
