A Summer Pleasantry

By Robert S. Becker

You betcha, we crashed the stage

With willful slogans oozing rage;

Like snarling Palin, our model rogue,

Ain't contempt in "populist" vogue?


Umbrage propels Tea Party zeal,

Defying Obama's uppity seal;

Don't blame the looming Civil War

- Advertisement -

Because we roar, "We're all done for."

Or slam "know-nothing, redneck hicks"

For ridiculing socialist cliques;

Death panels, welfare get us fried,

Plus perverts pushing gay pride.

Hell yes, we're the radical right,

Small-town, proud, and lily white;

Evangelical, as the Bible explains:

We only believe what God ordains.

Why can't the world be as it was,

Jobs for us, not distant foreigner?

With old-time religion, faith alone,

Not secular science on the throne?

We'll brawl to take our country back

From outsider or minority attack;

Let's make it real simple, like ABC,

Watch out, boy, "Don't tread on me."

We reject foes to Israeli peace,

Worship Limbaugh, not P.C. police;

What choice: get armed to rumble,

Otherwise, America will crumble.

Throw leftwingers down the tubes,

They hate we love guns and boobs;

They gripe we're dinosaurs on race

"Some people" should know their place.

So, we ain't a-feared of revolution

Favoring secession over evolution;

And readin' lies "bout climate change,

Just cuts practice at our rifle range.

Change can flame from smallest fire,

Long as rightwingers goad our ire.

Praise the Lord, pass ammunition:

No Rapture without conflagration.
