"I want to tell you
about the Negro,"
Said the wizened old white supremacy hero
While dancing to sedition's deniro
Complaining about welfare to the news joe
While never paying what he does owe
Spewing racism like a schmo
As a human being he's a straight-up zero
In the end we reap what we sow.

In his post, Bjorn teaches us about Dagsvers and encourages us to write about a current event without metaphor or softening the edges, and maybe add a little picture.
So this is what I wrote. You may have heard of this guy, or maybe you recognize him in my fine drawing.
And I am completely terrified to post this.
Like y'all didn't know my politics were a little left of the middle anyway.
And just yesterday, someone complimented me about how non-judgemental I was. :)
but seriously, this guy is an asshat
(I'm going to go try to write a poem using anaphora for NaPoWriMo now.)
