So for English class, we have to write a poem entitled "My American Dream." My teacher is probably expecting some bull**** piece about discrimination, equality, or freedom or something like that. I was thinking about just satirizing consumerism, but I don't know how to clearly get my point across. Should I just write some random poem about equality or something? Help me, UG!
Something about killing your boss.

Go for it.

Here are your options
A). BS it and write what she wants you to write, ultimately giving you a good grade.
B). Write what you want to write, risk your grade or totally impress the teacher.

I like the second option better.
Write about a dream that is full of patriotic banners and whatnot that you actually had. The first step is to have that dream. Get to sleepin'.
A band of my very own:

O what a tangled web we weave
When corps corrupt and lies deceive
No one to live, prosper, olny perspire
Under the heat of the highers ups fire
Stuck into the furnace are we
But shut up we shall never

and on

and on

Whatever you feel like lol
Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.

Speaking of plagarism, someone reasently submitted as a joke a copy of Pride and Prejudice to 6 publishers to see if they'd notice that it was a copy. only one noticed, the others stating what a remarkable piece of writing it was and that it was amazing. One even turned it down saying the world didn't need that sort of book.

Just base it on getting rid of a group like hippies or fat people. You will get an F for it but still.

So here's what I've written so far:

"My American Dream

I want to grow,
I want to succed,
My way,
Listen to me.

Because one day,
I'll be bringing forth the change.
While the threads on your back,
the gadgets in your pocket,
the cash in your wallet,
Won't achieve anything."

I think I've strayed a little too much, opinions?

Colt 49 and two zig zags, baby that's all we need...

Bust out a witty rhyme about sleeping with your boss (or killing as mentioned)

Colt 49?
