A collaboration with Hullabaloo22:

 

'Kids, gather round, Uncle Fester has a tale to tell,

a cautionary tale of ignorant egotism that befell

 

your grandparents, back in the day; twas much

different then, but affects us still; was such

 

nightmare;, that it's hard to believe it happened, such a strain

See, there was this swamp that this president promised to drain,

 

but instead of draining, it flooded, it overflowed,

swamping all of America from the destruction it sowed

 

It’s kind of like the flooding that is going on today,

the one that says intolerance – well, hey, that’s A-Ok!

 

The destruction is running rampant in the flood of so much hate,

too late to close the dam, it seems they’ve disengaged the gate.

 

The promise was of one thing but we’re heading for another

where everyone’s divided, even sister from their brother.

 

Some things are unbelievable, can’t possibly be true,

so don’t let all these egotistic dreams go and swallow you."
