Hey, Granny, tell us about how bad it may get,

you've been blaring like a siren about the terrible threat


posed by Mr. Trump and his ilk, who seem to be

spreading like a swarm of far-right locusts--you see


the danger, you hear the goose-stepping, you feel the madness

coming around again, you understand the threat, we can only guess,


that is, those of us who even care, for the others seem

to be under some spell, a product of Hell, tell me it's only a bad dream,


Granny, tell me that surely we're not going down this road again?

Surely we're not playing a losing hand, and expecting to win?


Yeah, let's ask Granny, she knows full well the danger we're heading for.

She once thought the terrible past was locked behind the door,


but now she's watching with disbelieving eyes, as sad history repeats itself.

WAKE UP! WAKE UP! Can't you hear the chiming of that distant warning bell?
