America

America= my guitar
out of tune
issues with instrument and player
pegs are nubs
strings are worn down & tired from hearing all this jargon
the player
when he creates music, it comes out dead
or
when he plays a song of love, it comes out as a song of hate
replace the wooden pegs with some fresh new ones
rewind the strings, tune them right
with the pegs, or have the player construct a new song
one that makes sense
and one doesn't destroy the guitar
