UNBELIEVERS Pledge Allegiance to the Flag [#twitterfoundpoem July 16, 2010]

UNBELIEVERS Pledge Allegiance to the Flag [#twitterfoundpoem July 16, 2010]
Tweets+Edits=#twitterfoundpoem

You secretly root for the villain.
HELLBOUND HEPCATS, UNBELIEVERS,
GRAVEYARD JUNKIES.... You root for them all.
your heart feels heavy and You secretly feel defeated.
and You wonder how those who have lost their mind
find that special someone next to them.
You wonder if they all secretly root for the villain.
You root for the junkie when he takes stolen goods
to a drug dealer in exchange for narcotics.
You root for the cop when he bashes the head
of a defeated man. You wonder how a Hero
could look like a villain as You secretly take
stolen goods to your dealer in exchange for narcotics
and pledge allegiance to the flag.

I really dig these "found poetry" works. This one was subversive to the max, kind of puts the reader through the wringer - well done!
