November the 8th

November the 8th

Oh what a mistake

came from November the 8th

 

at first we thought

how bad could it be

for little old you or me

it got bad as we got mad

and well,

The Alt right rose and white people marched in rows

not all but most

telling us all how to live our lives as they kept post

Your skin is too dark, they’d say

As they carried my neighbor away

 

Ah, November the 8th

November the 8th

Oh what a mistake

came from November the 8th

 

The Trumpets were all the rage

Beautiful women burning books

Showing us all how we should look and cook

But now for those flat chested ones just the cage

The cubicle sin for what you’ve been given

hid them away and made them pay

for not having the most popular features of the day

forget equal pay or self respect

there was nothing of any of us left

 

Ah, November the 8th

November the 8th

Oh what a mistake

came from November the 8th

 

No educational fixes just higher taxes

Corporations being lifted by our breaking backes

Soon us Americans couldn’t work in our own land

for simple math was beyond our command

So foreigners were brought in to perform

and we were demanded to conform

 

Ah, November the 8th

November the 8th

Oh what a mistake

came from November the 8th

 

Deportations began

Of true and real citizens

As it never stopped our country before

Why would they care, it was after all only the poor

The blight on the golden dome for sure

 

Ah, November the 8th

November the 8th

Oh what a mistake

came from November the 8th

 

The only small saving grace

Was our forced migration put us in the right place

To watch as our old home burned to the ground

In some world war or so what was whispered around town

I felt bad for a minute, but then realized we earned it.

Leave your mark or go for a walk. Both sound pretty nice.
