That Donald Trump?
He's thicker than a whale's ****!
That didn't work
He's still becoming president.
Activists around the world must continue searching
For that perfect combination of words to highlight
How ****** he is
How ****** his supporters are
And thus bring them over to our side.
These people are working two jobs one week
And getting fired from both jobs the next
And all you could offer was memes and social experiment videos?
People don't want your memes!
Nor do they want your veganism
Your Eastern philosophy
Your glittered faces
Your acid induced self discovery
Your fat bass drops
Your hashtag lookatmeimsuchagoodperson statuses
Or your white reggae revival projects.
They want money
They want power
And they're right to want it.
They wanted it so bad that a talking tangerine's promise would suffice.
And where were you?
You were a thousand feet up in the cultural clouds
You did this.
You just let a president get away with pushing drone strikes in the morning
Because he did comedy skits with celebrities in the afternoon.
Your craft beers and independent cafés
Have booted the poor out of town centres
All over the world.
When they needed socialism
You sympathised but were too unique to call yourself one.
When they broke out in riots
You were there at the front
With your polaroid
Photographing the blood and broken glass.
You hide yourselves in safe spaces
Delete people who disagree with you
And condemn others for building walls.
None of you are hipsters
It's always someone else
Who is the hipster.
But you all have the brains and the hearts
To turn the world around.
Because for every ***** grabbing racist
There is someone too tired and too desperate
To accept anything short of extreme.
The only madness now is moderacy
And if you speak for something real
Conversation is all it will take.
The day we became too cool for movements
Was the day we lost.
Until we do, our next liberal hero
Will be a Rasta president
Bent over for Wall Street with a **** for war
Loved by all after his first act in the oval office
Was to take a selfie whilst sparking a joint.
Not cool man,
