about

Goodnight, democracy.
Were you ever even fully awake?
Tucked in by George Wallace's corpse
in a Yankee's marked-up sweatshop suit.
Nostalgic for Jim Crow,
because hatred trumps sanity,
and they vote in the name of God,
deaf to the sound of Christ Weeping.

Goodnight, democracy.
Were you ever even fully awake?
Confederate Necromancer
in a Yankee's McCarthy-black jackboots.
Nostalgic for Jim Crow,
because ignorance trumps compassion,
and they vote in the name of God,
deaf to the sound of Christ weeping.
