Call it what it is

Tis the season, the season for treason,
I can't understand it, no matter their reason
 
Use pretzel-logic to defend what they're doing, 
The bottom line? The constitution they're screwing
 
Sedition disguised as patriotic; mob rule as dissent,
Their democratic ideals just got up and went
 
How did we end up here in the land of the free;
When a vocal minority wants to speak for you and me?
 
Misguided "patriots' take a dump right on the eagle,
Worship a false god who foments illegal
 
Merry band of enablers on the far right fringe
Who turned on a dime towards unhinge
 
Freedom tastes like chicken and Kool-Aid
Warriors of nothing on their bullshit crusade!

Did anyone say, "Heaven's Gate"? Make the kool aid and put on those track suits and Nike's and get ready for that space ship.

Hopefully Trump and his mini-trumps will finally meet justice so we can all deal with America's problems with civility and move forward.
