The likelihood that we are witnessing
Attempted incompetent fascism
Is quite undeniable at this point
No need to defund the police when all
These officers have no insignia
And anyway they just catch and release
To break up the chaos on empty streets
Federal lands will not defend themselves
Anonymous faces in riot gear
Are the only recourse stemming the tide
Of people finding out their government
Does not have their best interests at heart
Open your schools or you won’t get money
If they have to they’ll force you at gunpoint
