Make America Great Again--A Poem of Pleading

Make America Great Again—A Poem of Pleading

Why Can’t We Make America Great Again,
Like back in the day,
When we could be assholes and never have to take accountability,
Why Can’t We Make America Great Again, Rick,
It wasn’t great for everybody, but it was great for you and me,
Now we have to compete with Julio, Dunia, and José,
Why Can’t We Make America Great Again,
Back when people supported the good stuff,
Like segregation, slave-holding, and no women voting,
Why Can’t We Make America Great Again,
When people gave a damn,
And got a job, without complaint, and brought the food home to Mary Anne
Now Mary Anne’s a CEO and I don’t even own land,
Why Can’t We Make America Great again,
Back when people had rights,
And you and I could get away with murder on a dark lonely night,
Why Can’t We Make America Great again,
So the people can be free,
And we can continue to support the good stuff, like white superiority.
Why Can’t We Make America Great again,
Back when we valued the bible,
A man was a man, a woman was a woman, and rape was just a foible!
Why Can’t We Make America Great Again,
When things made sense to us, the world was with us,
Now we have to watch ourselves when we make fun of the Blacks, Trans, or Gays,
Why Can’t We Make America Great Again,
And get our jobs fair and square,
Wipe out all the immigrants and Native-Americans so us whites can have our mainstay!
Why Can’t We Make America Great Again,
It only makes sense.
The past worked in our favor, after all.
Cheers to that.
