Our choice


 

With Hullabaloo22:

 

We don’t want the likes of you, living over here,

you lower all the standards, let me make it clear.


 

This country, well it’s gone downhill, but I will make it great,

I’ll make a start by excluding the people that I hate.


 

There’s poor, but some are worthy, some just don’t belong,

they need to go back home again, not sing our nation’s song.


 

Don’t come here, you’re not welcome, we’ll send you on your way,

go back to where you do belong – and make sure that you stay.


 

If you still insist on coming, misery will be for getting,

you’ll never pass my standards when it comes to vetting.


 

We once stood tall for human dignity, we once were the land of the free,

but there's nothing to be proud of now, not that I can see.


 

Are we really just going to turn our backs on our proud past,

was this experiment of democracy built to last?


 

Or were the royals of yesterday going to be proven right?

That average people are incapable, and their insight


 

is needed to govern? Is our grand experiment going to disappear,

brought down by intolerance, bigotry and fear?


 

Or are we going to strive to make a more perfect union? We now stand

at a crossroads, the choice is clear, and in or hands
