It wasn’t led by lineage of Robert E. Lee—
it was nuts demanding healthcare for free!
It wasn’t a lynch mob, a putsch, or a coup—
what good does divisive descriptions do?
It wasn’t badges, ‘Bama to Boston, Cali to Idaho—
it was common citizens resisting the status quo
It wasn’t sergeant, senator, officer, captain, CEO—
it was disguised bad hombres—up from Mexico…
It wasn’t a Coalition of reversed Rainbow
it wasn’t ICE cold shots of ‘new’ Jim Crow
It wasn’t men longing life two centuries ago
it was masked escapees from Guantanamo…
It wasn’t about Boss Tweet or Ol’ Blak Schmo—
it was an attempt to install…Juan Guaidó!!!!
