It gets harder everyday to even turn on the idiot box
Because nothing is more depressing than watching
The one percent turn a country that I love into
A haven of hate, a wasteland of bigotry,
And an isolated island that is bent on self destruction.
Van Jones said we are witnessing a “whitelash”
The GOP wanted a leader to dismantle the progress made
In Barack Obama’s presidential administration
So this country elected a man who grabs pussies
Pisses on prostitutes
Creates constitutional crisis
Coines terms like “Alternative Facts” because his administration
Is spewing lies and; supporting and facilitating the idea
We as a country can’t have a fair election
In an effort to suppress the vote
All the while instituting a ban on religion that is a
Cleverly disguised Muslim/Islamic registration
Because believe you me before they left those airports,
Or were turned around at that gate
Or sent back to that country,
their names were recorded for posterity.
Stay woke they say
I feel like I’m on a fucking caffeine drip
It is open season on the fabric of our country
It is open season on the constitution
They are trying to silence the media by calling some outlets
The Orange one won’t take your questions because he doesn’t like you
Government employees have been told to get with it
Or quite your job
Back me no matter how incredible wrong I am
Freedom of speech seems to be a thing of the past
Just asked the EPA
But all that is the least of my worries
I live in Mississippi, the GOP capital
Our current Governor is related to the women who is
Directly responsible for Emmett Till’s death
Where our Governors have failed
To fully fund education for the past 30 years
Then we are left wondering why we have “failing” school districts
And questioning if we ever competed nationally
Every year Medicaid and Medicare come under fire
And every year we are left more financially strapped then the year before
Now they are threatening the school districts and college institutions
Saying if you don’t fly the state flag we will withhold state funding
Despite the fact that it is a symbol of hate to so many
Then we have senators that say shit like:
So a group of unhappy liberal women marched in Washington DC. We shouldn’t be surprised; almost all liberal women are unhappy. Perhaps there’s a correlation.
Nevertheless, I’m fascinated to see them exercise their First Amendment rights (however objectionable the message).
But I do have a question: if they can afford all those piercings, tattoos, body paintings, signs, and plane tickets, then why do they want us to pay for their birth control?
So where do we go?
What do we do?
What are we fighting for?
When locally the system is stacked against us
Where, believe it or not, the person sitting next to you
Voted for this clown.
I’ll tell you
We stand in solidarity with all people of color
We protest to let our voices be heard
We question the alternative facts
We push back against bigotry, sexism, racism and fascism
And we never forget the original people of this country are the Indians.
