Insurrection in America

Cancerous attempts to rid disease by infection with contempt and disconnection,

Trying to drive out light by the darkest of means, frightening with the obscene,

Overturning stability, peace and tranquility all for the fragility of one man’s ego,

Tearing down, destroying, decimating rather than capitulating to what is right,

And driven by so much fear … Can you hear their cries?

Their world is evaporating, self-annihilating, so they’re aggravating and agitating,

Led by an irrational, soulless man in want of national idolization and acclamation,

And, oh say, can you see that star spangled banner flying so free? How long will it be?

Hail the President: A Lemrick

Here come Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum,
Sound the trumpets and beat the drums,
And the President will be who?
Neither one can fill the shoe,
So just laugh and cry while Nero strums!
