It’s All One Thing #225: They Take the High Road, You Take the Low Road


 

You say the Koch Bros.
They say George Soros
They’ll get to Hell before you

You say a cool billion
They say fifty thousand (dollars)
You’re in hell before them

They say anti-fa
You say antifa
Here comes the next mass shooting

They say election
You say selection
You’ll be lost in limbo

You see heavenly inflection
They say Satanic infection
You’ll see God before them
You’ll see God before them
