Red Rock Country

The Enigmas of the Western American Psyche

Red Rock Country - an art work by T Newfields

Why do so many Americans live in mythical cowboylands?
Why are they uncomfortable without Bibles
& double-barrel pistols in their hands?

Why are so many Americans stuck at minimum wage?
How can a two-class society be democratic
if most people are confined to poverty from birth to grave?

Riding the red rocks ah America's barren lands
shifting through shallow logic & consumer demand
it seems like ah gunsmoke showdown
aint far out ah han'.
