This is weird and interesting. I pulled it from his wiki page:

World Ball Notebook, which won the American Book Award, emerged in part from taking his kids to soccer. Here he reads some excerpts:

 

 

America

America you don’t really want to go to war.
America its them bad Russians.
Them Russians them Russians and them Chinamen. And them Russians.
The Russia wants to eat us alive. The Russia’s power mad. She wants to take our cars from out our garages.
Her wants to grab Chicago. Her needs a Red Reader’s Digest. Her wants our auto plants in Siberia. Him big bureaucracy running our fillingstations.
— Allen Ginsberg, “America”
