INSURRECTION! January 12,2021
(January 6, 2021)
Was not a resurrection
For it took five lives away,
We’re a land of laws
Not window-climbing claws
Led by, a tyrant’s dismay.
One stupid led “the stupids”
Unfound conspiracies and lies
Brazing malignant hopes
Dead flags and ropes
And constitutional spies!!
He “flew the coup”
Before “Lady Liberty” could scoop
And push the truth down his foaming mouth,
He thinks he’s wanted
But his future is very haunted
In the bayous of the deep, deep south.
Now, the lesson to be learned
Is our concern
That America don’t quit, but quotes:
“We’re a poor man’s land
Seeking chances to advance
And our powers are in, our votes.”
