Feel The Shame America
You’re still fighting the Civil War
Where the North is rich
And the South is poor.
Where the white thugs
Fly their Confederate flags
And lynched black men
Lie in body bags.
Armed militia prowl the street
Believe the earth is flat
Or you’ll feel their heat.
A mad concoction of
And the KKKs version
The madman tapped into that hate
Stirred it up with ‘Make America Great’.
Empowering the racist thugs
To uneducated mugs.
You let it happen –
You voted him in.
Sanctioning vile hatred
Is your greatest sin.
You toadied and
As the fascism grew
When all the time
You really knew.
So where do we place the blame?
America, have you no shame?
First he was the spoilt brat, then the property tycoon, then TV star and finally President.
He hasn’t changed. Always the spoilt brat with his tantrums. Always the racist misogynist. The fascist speculator. The narcissistic sociopath.
But you were taken in. You voted for him.
You excused his crass behaviour, his surliness and tantrums. You excused his cheating, his mafia connections, his tax evasion and criminal activity. You excused his rudeness and arrogance. You excused the way he empowered the hate-filled.
You condoned his behaviour.
He was straight-talking. He connected with the working man.
You sucked up to the fascist chief.
You let him take over the Republican Party and install his family and associates.
You condoned him insulting allies and sucking up to despots.
You condoned his nepotism, cronyism and bulling.
You let him have the country and stood by while he lied, spread conspiracy and divided the nation.
You backed him.
Feel the shame America. You installed a fascist. You condoned a fascist and you stood by a fascist.
Feel the shame.
