How many creative ways can I express my dissatisfaction
with the wanna-be Nero fiddling while the nation
goes up in flames all around him, yet he's unwilling to see
just how inflammatory his harmful and hate-filled rhetoric will be,
is, to the very foundation of what our country's built upon.
The place where the underdog can lift themselves up will soon be gone,
Replaced by a world in which only the moneyed few
will have a chance, a kingdom of alternative reality for me and you.
Always speak the truth is gone, it'll be flexible to fit your needs.
Beware of the monster, hungry for power, lurking in the weeds.
Yet we've not been beware, we've willingly invited him in,
the ego-bull in the china shop, we lose, and only he wins.
The blue-collar's savior will soon turn out to be anything but,
he'll turn on them so fast, with rabbit punches to the gut.
I really fail to understand why they think this pho-billionaire
will suddenly change his stripes and understand their concerns, or even care.
Yes, I've got to figure out a way to sound the alarm, almost every day,
I need to spread out my rants, 'I'm pacing here!', there's got to be a way!
