With absolutely no apologies to Maya Angelou.
You may write us off as teabaggers
While you laugh and roll your eyes,
Try to buy us off with bribery
But still and proud, we’ll rise.
Yes, you’d like to see us broken.
Kneeling to a nanny state.
But we stand on our accomplishments.
We are all the things you hate.
Does our independence vex you?
Well, you take it awfully hard!
Once you fooled too many peope
Who are now alert, on guard.
So we’ll bid adieu to those who
Disregard our voices clear
And we’ll vote you out of office
In November of this year.
Out of the web of deceit and of debt
Up to a future that’s savable yet
We are a continent, noble and wide,
Growing in grace as we stand side by side.
Leaving behind all the liberal whines
We seek out leaders whose honesty shines
Bearing the gifts that our forefathers gave,
WE are the land of the free and the brave.
