Today America died
Got a big come shot in the eye
And ringling brothers may have left town
But I think they forgot their best clown
And he’s taken the Oval Office seat.
Is this the big whimper Eliot warned us of?
And who knew that a common clown with enough fast cash
Could get a trophy wife
And sell his snake oil throughout our land
And what of this joke
Marionette pulled by unknown strings
Perhaps he’s the Fool
And the real enemies are those who gave the loudest cheers
Your neighbors, your pastor, family members and those you counted as friends.
What does his victory say about them?
Which one to trust?
Which one hates the Muslims?
Or those goddamned fags?
Which one says black lives don’t matter
Which ones say this is a CHRISTIAN NATION?
Who, pray tell, is to blame?
Who, pray tell, is the real enemy?
