The american Dream

The american Dream is like a pair of Jordan’s. They are constantly selling and creating new versions of them and also at the same time repackaging and redistributing the same bull shit ones you thought were played out years ago.

And what do you do? You wait in line for hours, sacrifice your livelihood, drop half your paycheck, skip meals, your babies diapers can wait, you even kill & steal. Just to put them on your feet and walk all over them. And it’s not until you die that you realize that it’s nothing more than $5 of leather and cloth made in a foreign factory by a child being sold a dream that one day they too can escape that world through hard work and dedication.
