Tower in the Sky

For someone who’s a pretty mild-mannered, conflict averse individual in day-to-day life, satires I write tend to come out surprisingly acerbic. Sorry not sorry. Enjoy (or troll me with some variation of “Oh yeah? Well he’s president, so suck it! Woohoo, make America great again!” or “I’m a better Christian than you”, but consider yourself warned that I’ve heard like 10,000 of those so you’re gonna have to be pretty ingenuous to come up with something nobody else has said to me 😉  And if you’re one of those people who’s like “Hey Amelia, I’M nothing like the character you created in this piece of writing. I only voted for the guy because this election was kinda like choosing whether I’d prefer to be decapitated or buried alive, and how the heck does a person choose between crappy alternatives like that?”, please know that I get it and that this is not directed at people like you.)

He said he’s gonna build a wall
to protect me and mine
I hope it’s gonna be as tall as his tower in the sky
For a man so high-falutin’
he’s sure in touch with all my fears
And when he speaks what’s on his mind
I’m sure danger’s drawing near

Somethin’s gonna happen
I feel it in my bones
It’s just around the corner
What or when, I don’t quite know
But if it’s up to him we’re gonna win
Make this country great again

Cause he’s a real straight shooter
Says the things I want to say
Things I’ve never said out loud before
That my conscience had restrained
But that man on the TV
He tells it like it is
And sometimes I’m not quite sure where he ends and I begin

Come the mornin’ after
this great election day
Them hippies won’t stop whinin’ cause they didn’t get their way
They’re scared he don’t like women
They’re scared he don’t like blacks
I don’t know how to answer so I mock them and I laugh

The Jesus in my Bible
said His kingdom ain’t of this world
But that man on the TV
He’s gettin’ me what I deserve
“Survival of the fittest”,
ain’t that what Darwin said?
I’m still laughin’ at them hippies
as I crawl up in my bed
