Bamboozled No More! Country of Grumpy ol’ White Guys


 

Inspired by Rachel Martin’s interview with Pat Buchanan May 5, 2016 on NPR</em

Country of grumpy ol' white guys
looking up at the full moon, which is also white,
whining for the good ole’ days
when they could white out the truth

and proudly admit to reshaping each crucifix
into a swastika.
Now singing a chorus of their latest campaign song,
”Vote for Me, and I Won’t Let Them Be.”

The grumpy ol' white guys
watch their inner Klansman twist and shout
continuing the tradition of reshaping each crucifix
into a swastika
