What a Difference a Year Doesn't Make...

In the year twenty twenty-one On the 6th of January A thing happened in the United States To most folks quite contrary ​ Morals were not accounted for Decorum burned down like a pyre Due to unscrupulous efforts and lies Democracy was set on fire ​ There is not one explanation For how these events came about But I guarantee delusion set in All fueled by mistrust and doubt ​ The world watched with contempt and ire As that mess of a man came undone And befuddled a simple election By lying and saying he’d won ​ But that is how his clown car ways Reduced strategy to a joke He rallied his supporters and minions A white hot fire sprang from the smoke ​ Those idiots filmed the whole thing We saw how those jackasses jump Whenever they’re triggered by logic Brings chaos in service of Trump ​ Like children set loose in a store They broke things with little regard Acting so spoiled and shambolic For losing to them was too hard ​ But harmless these antics were not Those watching were so horrified As the protest turned ugly and deadly US democracy died ​ Today the mess has been cleaned up It’s been a whole year of debate Yet today we are waiting for justice But all we still hear of is hate ​ What will you believe? Facts or lies? Endlessly slow feels the pace But the GOP is about stalling Fairness gets slapped in the face ​ But until the last witness speaks Of truth we'll take any amount When Americans wake from this nightmare

Give attention to matters that count ​ May the year we spent in limbo Be not disadvantaged by guile And relegate Trump to the trash heap Make sanity come back in style
