 Saw an ad for an upcoming new show,
on one of the cable news channels, which, I don't know.
 
It imagines a world where the South won the Civil War,
and slavery still existed, a controversial, and a sore
 
subject and premise, I know, but it imagines a land
where a white, pampered, wealthy (thanks to daddy), and
 
delusional president rules only for whites,
and curtails many programs, and blacks have no voting rights.
 
A country where roughly 30 percent dominates the other 70,
And he takes us back to the bad old days, with his whites-first, we'd be
 
screwed if that were true, if it came to pass.
You'd better be white, and rich, or he'll rule against your ass!
 
Oh, wait, it exists for real, we don't need a show
to see it in action, just look out your window.
