You born under a bad sign, in years just past

will not gaze in wonder, with mouth aghast

 

like some of us who remember, remember when

we were forced to read a novel written with a poison pen,

 

with the end before the beginning, goodbye before hello.

This will all become standard issue, not the cruel blow,

 

maybe fatal, that was dealt to out nation, to democracy,

impossible to understand, our will replaced by an autocracy.

 

Uncertain future, certainly set to crash and burn,

This is looming disaster, a horrible lesson you will learn.

 

You'll be learning, and burning, forever and a day,

as the system of checks and balances, and normal, rides away
