You say because I am not a Christian
That means I am totally bound for Hell?
Mostly those who claim to be Christian
Behave in such a way you could never tell.
You say because I'm gay I am unnatural,
That I am surely the Devil's tool?
You're upset I am the way God made me?
The way I see it you are the fool.
You say Jews and Muslims are disgusting,
And you look to them to place all your blame.
All three religions are the followers of Abraham,
And much of what they believe is the same.
You say women are possessions like cattle
And are required to walk three steps behind.
If You agree to treat people like chattel
You can't expect others to be blind.
Almost all religions agree on one thing,
Stealing is a basic kind of sin.
But if you use your money to bribe people off
It's not a righteous life you're living in.
You say you want America back
Exactly he way it used to be
Back when women had no rights
And we based our wealth on slavery?
You say you believe all men should
Be free, with inalienable rights?
But some of them should not vote
Or even be allowed out at night?
You say you retain the right to decide
Who gets to do what and where?
Read that to me in the Constitution.
I don’t remember it being there.
Are we alt-right? Are we alright?
When definitions change will all see it outright?
Go ahead be proud, eat hash.
Understand the insecurities of the backlash.
For now Lets try this Tea. (You see?)
With open mind and objectivity.
Oh, those poor
without a ***
to **** in
who celebrate their
in his gilded elevator
of gold stolen
from the empty plates
who do pay taxes
with real axes
it boggles my mind
just what in
could they have been
I mean, Sweet
Jesus, we'll all be
in the end.
Where e're we go, we celebrate
The land that makes us refugees,
From fear of priests with empty plates
From guilt and weeping effigies.
