Assassination of democracy
Our values plummeted in pits of Hell
Screw this unbridled animosity
Participation in fascism dwells
Unleashing fury on our paradigm
Eradicating our security
Dreading white power like a hackneyed rhyme
Red roses, blue violets, and perjury
We never thought tear gas would be welcome
And wishing hate mongers would bite the dust
Decorum wanted, diplomacy shunned
I know I’m not the only one who cussed
Trump ends four years of hubris with violence
Screw using our rights to remain silent
