The Ugly American

The ugly American is alive and well

Far more than we could ever tell

Broadcast marked the start of the break

Then MTV to compound the mistake

Bad karaoke

Bad attitudes

Too much ink

Stale platitudes

The physical beauty, when attained

even this is grossly stained

Not from any original sin

Most of this ugly lives within

Confident to stand alone

in underachieving comfort zone

Somehow they are still convinced
