I have been trying to think

of good things that have come from the USA
to Europe (especially the British Isles,
which have the misfortune of a shared language)
since, say, 1900, and have, so far, come up with nothing
that is not greed-oriented, environment-destroying,
socially-divisive or toxic - except for jazz.

Its legal system is punitive, its penal system vicious,
and as for its quaint and hallowed 18th century Constitution -
why is it that no other country has adopted it ?
