A Thursday Meditation

I don't know what else to do with this, so I thought I might as well put it here (my reaction to this - based very loosely on this)...

O beautiful polluted skies
That pour down acid rain
Upon the heads of right-wing nuts
Who shout out oaths insane
From "Fox and Friends," the cancer spreads
Across our panicked land
Watch hate and fear now reappear
Just like the Repugs planned

We once stood up for people who
We fought to liberate
From oppressive demagogues
Who we now imitate
Our media's obsequiousness
Keeps us hypnotized
It's true, in sum, we've now become
The thing we once despised
God Bless America.
