I can’t believe many want us To starve, to sicken and die. I can’t believe they hate dark skin And I bet even they don’t know why. I can’t believe they think it is fine To tease friends who are different And that they hate women and claim What clearly is discrimination isn’t.
I refuse to believe your insistence That you are a member of a church That is fine with blocking our laws And leaving the land in the lurch. I don’t accept the standard cant That all our young must go to war, Then watch people act as if veteran’s aid Is not part of what government is for.
It hurts to hear that you hate welfare But gleefully grant it to the very rich And buy aircraft and warfare equipment As our highways fall into a ditch. It is far beyond shameful to see The number of our American cynics Who would vote for a liar, and a thief A draft dodger, a cheat and a bigot.
What has happened that we got stupid Enough to not be able recognize A narcissist that is in it for himself Who is neither a statesman or wise? How sad it has become for this land The example of truth and wisdom Has pitched its camp with an uncaring fool And those who agree with him.
