The dogs of demagoguery
Run rampant on the streets
Defend statues of butchery
And working class defeats
Built palaces on stolen land
Given to the gentry
Whilst priests do up in pulpits stand
Supporting no entry
Meanwhile all across Africa
Where once tribes owned the land
Slavers shipped to America
With bibles in their hand.
Fear gas used in ninety eight towns
To scare off protesters
It’s theatre for orange skinned clowns
Whilst racism festers.
Fox News would have us all believe
Trump wins in November
Whilst he pulls fake tweets from his sleeve
All now will remember
The whole wide world is in danger,
We have been here before,
Cenotaph goons look no stranger
Heiling Hitler’s lost war.
I can’t take it much more…..
