Please don’t sit in my amen corner
while I’m preaching to the choir
Pull up your roots
Put up your dukes
Let’s put this rage to the wire.
This is not the country I pledged to
This is not the land of the free
But this is the country I’d die for
even as it bleeds for me.
It bleeds through the Veteran’s tears
through the elderly, poor, and the tykes,
through the denial of services for years
and the boys and girls sacrificed.
Bathe the altar with ignorant blood
Destroy totally public programs now
Eliminate everyone who’s objections flood
While apotheosis of a miscreant allow
