Infestation

 

It’s as though there’s been an outbreak or some kind of infestation

as out of the wood-work they all flow, this right-wing manifestation.

 

There’s no need to pretend any more, no need to hold it back --

just give voice to all those thoughts, and all compassion that you lack.

 

So you hate your neighbour for the colour of their skin --

well, now you’ll just not hide it, being racist’s not a sin.

 

And if you are a woman then you’ll need to watch your back;

you’ve returned to being second class and are fair game for attack.

 

So take your guns out to the range and practice ‘til you’re done

and be prepared to use them saying, ‘I am Number One!’

 

These egotists have come from shade and they are oh, so proud,

they’re attacking all their targets who now exist under a cloud

 

of uncertainty, intimidation, and don’t forget the fear

now the fascist thought ‘You Will Obey’ is back to ruling here.
