Great Again!

26 Dec

One beautiful day, when the sky was blue,
and birds were lifting their songs,
I said to myself “Can this be true?
We’ve finally done what we set out to do!
We’ve made ourselves Great again!

We’ve rid all the streets of people who looked
like they didn’t belong in our town.
Their language, too strange.  Their attitudes shook
the foundations outlined in our little red book.
These different ones had to get out!

Our Greatness was shaped in another way, too.
We only permit certain thoughts.
We never allow what some would construe
as a thoughtful opinion or personal view.
We are Great!  And we all think alike.

When anyone comes to our Great little town
and asks for permission to stay
we question their motives and if there are found
any different opinions, we mark them all down.
We won’t let our Greatness be stained!

We’re open to all and we won’t make a fuss
if you plan your new residence here.
Just fill out the form and remember you must
show positive proof that you are just like us.
Bank records and votes cast will do.

Oh, it’s Great to be Great!  Remarkably Great!
Let’s hear it for Greatness Again!
The rest of the world’s in a pitiful state
but what’s that to us, we’ve a lock on our gate.
We don’t need that riffraff in here!

The message we bring and the steps that we take
are very well planned and designed.
Our goal is quite clear.  Please make no mistake.
The system is our to fully remake
as long as the people don’t care.”

    Roger….This is magnificent….so profound. If you have no objections, I would like to share this with friends back east and, also, print some copies to take with me to church next Sunday.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and Sue.
