I am a liberal (a poem)
Under the covers I long to be.
It's under the covers where I'll be free
To turn the dark nighttime into day
And dream the cares of the world away.
All is sweet and lovely, everything is serene.
All is fresh and kind and beautifully clean.
Nobody ever means me harm.
All I have to do is disarm
Them all with my understanding and care.
An equal compassion is sure to be there.
When I wave my white flag of surrender they'll see
A bright blazing light and congratulate me
On the wisdom of yielding my family's life
To relieve us of any further strife
Which would likely have occurred if I
Had sounded a bellowing battle cry
And stood between all that I hold dear
And the hell of the enemy's coming near
To destroying what civilization has built.
I'm far too ridden with senseless guilt
To stand by my family, my country, my God.
No, into sweet slumber I'd rather nod.
