Infestation on a national stage,

screaming out a backlash, and their rage.

 

A direct result of he who served before,

always there, hidden racists at their core.

 

Surprising me with their vehement obsessions,

with their focus on 'me' and on gaining possessions.

 

Not what would be good for us all and everyone,

just the white, see the plague rats run.

 

Echoing greed, and what's in it for me?

Turning hope into despair, and at light speed.

 

So frantic they are with their undo, undo, undo's,

they slithered from the darkness of primordial ooze.

 

No thinking, no compassion, no thought to future days,

just feverish scampering in their short-sighted maze.

 

So determined to make over all in their diseased image,

leaving nothing behind but the sad wind and the desert sage
