Oh, for what is a true patriot anyway?

Ye who is too hateful to concede defeat,

too thuggish to deserve democracy

too blind to the sufferings

too busy gerrymandering

too supreme for the truth

Oh, for what are words anyway?

this is the land where rioters rage,

this is the home where civility is burnt

this is the joke where liars rule,

this is where they swim to your shores

then nailed with Judas’ kiss
