The Election of 1612

There was a group of men, who knew right, and knew better

So they picked a candidate who believed as they

Women needed to be told; after all, they were women!

Nothing would be tolerated that went against what they’d been taught

And so they were set on undoing anything perceived as a threat

Supposedly, big government; they were against

But this was different; this cause was just

Using government to impose their will

Was okay, because they knew they were right!

Never mind if the citizens thought something different,

What did they know? And separation of church and State?

They laughed at the notion; after all, they knew everything

Wait a minute, what did I say? 1612?

I meant 2012!
