Magnificent Marvin, the Soothsayer
~ Magnificent Marvin, the Soothsayer ~
Welcome to the parlor of Magnificent Marvin, the Soothsayer
Silence, please, as I peer into my as yet opaque crystal ball
Ah, friend, the mist is disappearing; the future is becoming clear
And so, enabled by the Powers-That-Be, the Magnificent Marvin
shall now prophesy...
I hereby predict -- nay, guarantee! -- that the removal of
Theodore Roosevelt's statue from the National History Museum
will -- please grip your chair tightly, because here it comes -- not
I repeat, will NOT, save one single Black Life in the U.S.A!
~ Voila!...The Magnificent Marvin has hereby decreed it! So be it! ~
