DO WE REALLY WANT A REPUBLIC
Are you there Benjamin Franklin?
Yes, I am,
I live in the benevolent intentions of the Constitution
When a malevolent leader appears who spouts untruths
and offends the sacredness of the Constitution
making you feel endangered be not afraid the Constitution works
When it becomes clear that removing the leader is necessary,
though arduous and complicated, the task must be done;
if your country is to survive.
I cry not for the loss of this nation’s malevolent leader
but for the babies not yet born
Who’ll never know truth was once alive and thrived.
It was predicted that a second coming was imminent
but before that heavenly event
triple 6 would show up
Some believed he was evil, others did not
but his assault on justice and institutions brought death
chaos blossomed making people believe more in evil
His command of the sycophant multitudes
who jump to his voice and venerate his name is absurd
but there the obsequious mindless fawners are
Mollycoddling his fake observances and biased thoughts
ignorantly gives him power to destroy their own lives
oblivious the ax can fall on them too for he has no loyalty
Getting to know who he is, was imperative
we learned he cannot be trusted and never can be
he is the destroyer of Justice and Peace
We do not choose some leaders we get
but knowing this is a bad one holding sway over our lives
it's urgent for critical thinking to interrupt his corrupt plans
Tomorrow rolls on unaware Democracy can cease to exist
Mr. Franklin warned us almost three hundred years ago
This Republic, how badly do we want to keep it?
