Sic Semper

Post by audiofool » Tue Sep 26, 2017 2:12 am

Calling names
hurling accusations
the insecure buffoon
is on another tear

what do we expect
from a TV tycoon?
it's not as if
he's inclined to care

when it's game time
in the land of the free
hand in hand
we're taking a knee

you're paid to play
you can
have your say
on someone else's dime

cos speech ain't free
when you're a
piece of property
expression oughta be a crime

we'll make the nation
truly great
by defending the fundamental
rights of all
the weak, the poor
the voiceless minions

against the tyranny
of conformity
of artificial homogeneity
lacking life, spontaneity
intolerant of unfamiliar
contrary opinions

calling names
denigrating the very
citizens you are
supposed to represent

at least try to act
Nixonian
by resigning
you narcissistic peasant

when it's game time
in the land of the free
arm in arm
we're taking a knee.
