Dark Years

by April Clinton

SO it's done and over
Dubya's gone and won again
Tell me why is mid-America
this sneering liar's friend?

The evidence is clear as day
yet they don't seem to see
W's a rich, lying bastard
destroying the country.

A hundred dollar tax break
and some Christian bluster
is all it seems to take
to sway the inbred cornhuskers.

When their kids're sent to Iraq
and the body bags pile up
Let's talk moral leadership
and that lame duck scewer-up.

But til then we must endure
the whole wide world's cold scorn
and pin our hopes on a future
and resist being forlorn.

For the revolution's coming
be it bloody, be it not
We'll have no more rich boy kings
and no more preaching zealots!
