Flip Ya For It


You cling to your politics 

I’ll hold tight to mine 

I try to see all sides of an argument 

You toe the party line 

I will staunchly defend

Your right to disagree

What I cannot respect 

Are your ploys to demonize me

Partisan politics 

Has mutated 

Into racism and hate

State sanctioned abuse

Well ain’t that just fuckin’ great

There is no voice of reason 

No exchange of ideas

Just a bully pulpit playing 

To the basest of fears

No intelligent discourse 

No cordial compromise 

Any difference of opinion 

You label fake news and lies

A public fed up

Talking heads shouting down

Mainstream media coverage 

Of our shit show clown 

How far have we fallen 

Amidst the bloodlust and crime 

You defend the indefensible 

While I bide my time
