For the Goons

How will I feel when the Chinese have come,
And the Stars and Stripes are lowered for
The final time in Washington? How will
I feel when a white man won't be given
An equal chance for a job, when the gun
Goons are relieved of their weapons
And churches are closed, and women can
Terminate pregnancies anywhere, if they
Want? How will I feel when the toadies
In western Europe dismantle the NATO
Alliance, and all that is left of America's
Reich is a sort of a vacuum, some places
In textbooks which tick off the eras
Of empires, each of which flourished,
Then fell into ruin? If I'm still living,
I'll laugh to myself. “Great again?”
Sorry, babe. Uncle Sam's dead,
And you can't hear anyone grieve.
