It Can't Happen Here

The pundits and talking heads The chaterati classes All assure us That it can’t happen here Fascism will never happen here Our democratic system Superior to all others Check and balances Power of the media Will prevent fascism From taking root In the American soil They laugh And talk amongst themselves And laugh some more Convincing themselves Meantime the darkness Continues to descend As our President becomes more erratic And frankly shows signs of insanity The fascists supporting him Gather strength And one day They strike back With furry When the powers that be Try to remove the President He mobilizes his army His army of deplorables And they mobilize And his fascist supporters In the government Demand law and order And restoration of the Leader of the people As they have started calling the President He comes back into power And demands Unspecified emergency powers And so, the cycle ends And fascism wrapped inside a Christian flag Comes to America Full vengeance As they take charge And the chaterati classes Are all arrested The first to be rounded up America has fallen The media stars All comply The leader is great America is great And all who oppose him Must be terror sympathizers Or Tersymps for short And deserve to be rounded up Public protests are forbidden Muslims must register Atheists must be fired Alt media is shut down The internet is censored And I weep As I see the once great American nation Descend into a fascist nightmare And I wait for the midnight knock on the door Knowing that I am on the list. Knock Knock knock Open up, it is homeland security……
