Discrimination's Fires
by Reggie Miles 2017 All rights reserved

Say goodbye to net neutrality
Protesting is a felony
Abortion's illegal, immigration too
Freedom of speech is now taboo

Will this criminal nation ever learn
Discrimination's fires burn

Lower taxes for the wealthy few
Higher taxes for me and you
Healthcare lost to millions more
The rich get richer, the poor more poor

This criminal nation's greedy yearn
To see discrimination's fires burn

The new normal's not normal at all
Keep Mexicans out by building a wall
Muslims forced into a registry
To live in this land of the free

This criminal nation took a wrong turn
While discrimination's fires burn

Fake news is everywhere
Alternative facts are what we share
Normalization of violence and hate
Welcome to these un-united states

This criminal nation's hard to discern
As discrimination's fires burn

The president dodges his personal debt
Braggin bout grabbin what he can't get
He's a megalomaniac misogynist
Impeachment looms on everyone's lips

It's this criminal nation's end of days
Discrimination's fires are all ablaze

The republic's crashin to the ground
Because of a single orange faced clown
With tiny hands and skin too thin
A bad combover bully's narcissistic win

This criminal nation's point of no return
And discrimination's fires burn

My county tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing today
We've got to find a better way

This criminal nation has got to learn
Discrimination's fires burn

Millions marchin in the street
To an anti-fascist protest beat
They've had their fill of all this shit
And no they ain't gettin over it

This criminal nation better change its ways
Before discrimination's fires blaze


The Lesser Of Two Evils Is Evil Too
by Reggie Miles 2016 All rights reserved

Every four years we're invited to say
How we'd like things to go our way
The hopefuls line up on display
Ready to kiss all the babies in the USA

Wrapped in the flag they stand on stage
Spouting platitudes to incite electorate rage
The two parties promise as they share their plan
How those others can't fix it but we sure can

That one's a hater, it's plain to see
I'm a different gender, so vote for me
That one's a liar, who wants only war
I'll make our country great once more

Each side is careful to make their case
How they're the least evil choice in the race
They repeat in every ad on TV
It's plain that they are far more evil than me

Choose to fear party one or to fear party two
That's the two party choice they offer to you
Choose the less evil is what they want us to do
But the lesser of two evils, is evil too

The lesser of two evils is not my choice
I've been listening to a different voice
A voice of hope and love in my ears
Driving away the hate and fears


The Flimflam Man
by Reggie Miles 2017 All rights reserved

He's the flimflam man
Everyone knows that he's a sham
He's the flimflam man
Everyone knows he's a sham
He'll deceive, mislead and betray you
Whenever he can

He's a hornswogglin guy
Tailor-made to lie and cheat
He's a hornswogglin guy
Tailor-made to lie and cheat
Ain't nobody nowhere
He won't mistreat

He comes to town
With his two-faced funk
Tryin' to shake you down
With his con and skunk

He'll play ya for a sucker
He's the rip-off king
He's a real fast-talker
Oh you know what I mean

He's the flimflam man
Everyone knows he's a sham
He'll bamboozle and defraud you
Every way that he can

You know that deception
Is his middle name
That low down swindle
Is his only game

He's here to dupe and fool ya
With his double-cross
His hustle is to screw ya
And stiff ya with a loss

He's the flimflam man
Everyone knows he loves to scam
He'll sting, fleece and bleed
Hose and ream you, like only he can

Drumpft's a chump!
A narcissistic grump
An Oompa Loompa Hitler
We need to dump

He's a bigot
And doesn't get it
You voted for him?
You'll soon regret it!

His university failed
His airlines went down
His casinos closed
His vodka's not around

His TV show canceled
His mortgage company's broke
His marriages divorced
He's a bankrupt joke

He's not the choice
Of the electorate
He's a hate spewing
Bully Klandidate

He's a xenophobe
And a racist
He's a bad comb over

Do we like him? No!
Tell him he can go!
And hump his lyin' rump
Down loser road
