#ResistanceRadio

I’m laughing
I’m laughing out loud
and listening to the radio –
5.89 kilohertz
the DJ is Miss Evangeline –
speaking truths,
broadcasting live from the neutral zone.

It’s fiction.
It’s fiction traveling back in time to 1962.
It’s double fiction traveling back
to a counter-factual 1962 –
where the Germans and the Japanese
won the war to end all wars.

Now I’m crying
I’m crying out loud.
So sad about Miss Evangeline’s mother –
ovarian cancer, stage 4 –
so sad about the bomb the Germans
dropped on Washington, DC
to end the war in shameful surrender –

We used to be The Americans –
We used to be The Americans –
kicking ass and taking names
and making the world a better place –
it says so on the CIA man’s business card –
now all that’s left is radio, fake radio
at that, about a fictional time
when everything went off course.

Here is a link to Resistance Radio.
