It’s All One Thing #285: Shrove Tuesday 2019

 

Here I am going to the center
heading again for the Common
I carry a poster from decades ago
THE KLAN OUT FRONT THE STATE HOUSE
then now inside the State House now
because it’s all corporate law now
50 years later they’re finally ready
really to militarize outer space
SPACE FORCE to the rescue STAR WARS
on steroids hurling down death from
above with Agent Orange Head-in-chief
get him a bonnet with guided missiles
on it and carry him through the street
it’s time for the carnival of bloody
fools the torturer at Central Intelligence
and the war criminal currently existing
at the White House the fire breathing
dragon occupying such a very White House.
