Right wing in reverse

She'll be coming 'round the calendar again,
Painful chapters that have already been
 
Learning nothing from history's boners,
Make the same mistakes like citizen stoners
 
Doing the same, expecting a different result,
Tone-deaf members of the Know-Nothing Cult
 
Fight not to be lifted up but to be tied down,
Sad priorities should be the other way around
 
Deluded knights jousting in the name of their king,
Of pomp and circumstance they scream and sing
 
Let their misguided dreams ring though the ages,
And be recorded in history's yellowing pages
 
These reverse-warriors fought long and hard
To at long last be able to play their Trump card
 
In a game of poker with the nation as the prize,
Those deluded warriors wave America goodbye
