They're cooking in Iowa.
Methedrine is in the great farm state.
Everyone is "tweaking", man.
Towns stand deserted.
The buildings are skeletal remains.
Once healthy, the youth are violent.
They are sullen and desperate.
They do what they can to survive.
So do their parents.
They're cooking and growing weed.
Shooting heroin and doing crack.
It's happening all over America.
Local police don't want to arrest old friends,
or good neighbors.
Often they look the other way.
They sometimes protect the operations.
Or some of them take bag money.
This is the sad reality.
How far does it extend?
Drugs are coming in from all over the world.
Now we are doing business in every state.
Why don't the politicians stop it?
Why don't the corporations stop it?
Are they making money from it too?
Is this all real?
Maybe I'm just having a bad dream.


  1. Maybe you're stuck in last night's episode of "The Walking Dead?" There is an eerie similarity there, you know?

  2. Rich..its only going to get worse! As you well know, there are no real jobs left. Foreigners are doing what the middle class used to do only for far far less money. That's so that the corporations can survive in a world wide economy that has been taken over by the mega corporations whose only goal is to make as much money as possible from slave labor. That's how the South became rich before the civil war! We are back to square one. Does anyone care? No...not at all...the masses have been duped by such corporate puppet pontificates as Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Shawn Hannity, and the worst of the bunch....Mr. NO Spin....Bill Oreilly! Stop listening to these hateful lairs America! It is our duty as citizens to find the truth amongst all the bunk! mj

  3. Heard about a 14 year old boy who died over the weekend. Heroin. If I did want to get over my obsession with that particular addiction I couldn't. Every time I think my thoughts are too focused on it another child dies. And that's just here in the Western Suburbs of Chicago!

    Write your representatives people!

    Thanks for posting this.

  4. We definitely have to get proactive within our own communities...Thank you all for your posts!
