This Is Not America


This Is Not America

Malicious face of twisted rage
Blindly led to disengage
From fact or logic or reasoned thought
A sense of truth is nary sought

This is not America

Demagogue screams fitful venom
Behold, amassed, the mindless plenum
Fascist bent, tempestuous crowd
Empty slogans, yet shouted loud

Diversity their greatest fear
Boogeymen are always near
Through bigot’s voice and rapist’s mark
Republic’s light will fade to dark

This is not America

Lies, corruption, a swamp of fraud
Spew the hate, buffoons applaud
Tearing down foundation’s core
The GOP, a loathsome whore

In Donald Trump they found their muse
Mendacious scoundrel, perverted views
If this is our road of choice
And scales of justice lost a voice

Then this is not America
