Governor Pence! Governor Pence!
A question (like whither, or wherefore, or whence):
If bigots and racists deserve our respect,
How far is too far? Would you care to reflect?
You’ve said all Americans—all—are deserving,
But given your crowds, that’s a little self-serving—
Your people are waving Confederate flags
And screaming at w******s and n*****s and f***s
So which is it going to be, Governor Pence?
The one thing you can’t do is sit on the fence!
Align with the bigots—your prejudiced masses—
Or admit that your team has been giving them passes!
It’s fine if you’re racist—it’s fine if you hate!
You’re voting for Trump? Get a move on! Don’t wait!
We hate to win ugly, but worse is to lose,
If it’s Nazis for Trump, we can hardly refuse.
So, Governor Pence, what’s the line you would draw?
Who are citizens, when you and Trump make the law?
Or, Governor Pence, will you look to your sins,
And pray, for our nation, that Hillary wins?
I am torn between extremes. In one, democrats have shot themselves in the foot until that appendage exists no longer, and Trump emerges victorious. In the other, republicans of all stripes have been forced to declare allegiance, and sink with The Donald to the inky depths.
Hey, seriously, look to your local races. Be active. Change the world!
