Hype for a Dead Cowboy

by Ron Milon

IN the name of Western ideology, the Great Emancipator cut our housing,
           financial aid, education
In the name of Western democracy, the Gipper divided our country racially,
           economically, socially
In the name of Western tradition, the Father of the People killed democracy
           overseas, supported dictators, built up nuclear weapons, placed fear
           in our hearts
In the name Western economics, the Great Communicator refused
           to consider King's birthday as a national holiday, refused to say
           the word AIDS, refused to acknowledge the poor

Hype of an Emancipator, the Gipper, Father of the People, Great Communicator, cowboy, Dutch . . .

Don't believe the hype!
