I had a dream

I hailed a dream 

One dark night

To find myself 

In a place not right


My choices had 

Been taken away 

By a backward court 

Of the grand old ways!


The old wild west

Still held its sway

They said it was

Their country's way


The right to bear arms

Still had its freedom 

No matter how many

Kids were  bleedin'


And all LGBTQ

Had to watch out too 

Cos these good ol' boys

Were gunnin' for you!


I have a dream

Once, a great man said

But, in the end

They shot him dead


The dream turned sour

In this land of the free

So I hailed me another

'Case they came for me

Thank you Stephen. America, to me, is, sadly, starting to implode.
