The Washington Tea Party

 

The Washington Tea Party

 

 

By

 

 

Thomas L. Dynneson

 

It was the sixth of January of 2021

A new day of infamy now can be sung

 

The scene of crime is now etched in the blood

Of a woman veteran whom the establishment police shot dead

 

I watched it all on the tely on that miserable day

The scene was Washington where a rally was under way

 

The news was gloomy and not about to go away

The cause of the ruckus was an election that was in play

 

It all came to a head on January the sixth, according to plan

A required Constitutional day as we all understand

 

The scene turned chaotic in the twinkle of an eye

As up the hill the protesters did fly

 

They scaled the walls and forced open the doors

They entered the halls and the chamber floors

 

The police were too weak to resist the angry flow

They fell back in alarm and let them all go

The protesters occupied offices and they sat at the desks in a row

They occupied the chamber, drove out scammers who now had to go

 

Was this a cleansing or was it a crime?

The answer lies in future and will take some time

 

Some say it's obvious that this is a swamp

Full of the greedy who trample and romp

 

Arrogant asses who make their own deals

When it comes to elections, it no different from other things they steal

 

Then came a shot that punctuated this scene as never before

They murdered a veteran who served us in war

 

They shot her in cold blood as she lay on the floor

Now the masked deception has come to the fore

 

Democracy has a limited life span

It can survive for a while as best it can

 

But when it's over, it does not die with a great shout

It dies with whimper when the light of liberty burns out
