An Ode to Flavortown

The best and brightest, 

American Exceptionalism, 

Rising above in a rocket blast of red-white-and-blue, 


Houston we have zero problems. 

You use the metric system? 

Fuck you 

Metric system doesn’t land on the moon,

Or get you to Flavortown.

Kid Rock and Roman candles and Beef & Cheddars and Coca-Cola and Harley-Davidson.

Our guide is a spiky haired blessed profit leading us, onward,

To Flavortown.
