Leave The Failed Ideas Behind
It seems the latest trend we see,
now that we’ve hit hard times,
is for the city folks to flee
plague and leaders malign.
They run to the sticks or suburbs,
it looks like they won’t leave,
and hopefully they will have learned
to change their failed beliefs.
The idea that they once cheerled
led us to this collapse,’
the leftist though the experts bred
corrupted young minds fast.
The burning and the rioting,
the obsession with skin,
all the ritual self-hating
This all came from the failed notions
implanted in their brains,
virtue signaling in motion
drives half the world insane.
That violence is excusable
if done for leftist cause,
the soft on crime is laudable,
we don’t need cops and laws.
That business is the real bad guy,
so burn them, they’re ‘insured,’
it’s okay if some people die
for what ‘victims’ endured.
The providing law and order
is not really your job,
that you can throw aside voters,
makes excuses for mobs.
That everyone who disagrees
is a fascist to hurt,
and since you’re ‘right’ with history,
their pain is much 'deserved.'
That some folk must ‘apologize’
for things they never did,
that it’s fine to propagandize
in school to people’s kids.
That no one should every defend
their life with lethal force,
we should rely on the trained men,
then you say, “Police—no more!”
You voted for all these things,
yet now you act confused,
you never thought it would bring
destruction down on you.
Instead of fixing it, you ran,
safety you hope to find,
it’s your beliefs that left you damned,
leave the failed ideas behind.
