The Tea Party Folks
They got up from their rocking chairs, and slowly headed for the door, They’re old, retired, grandparents, who just won’t take it anymore. Hearing their President mock them and their neighbors on National TV, Was a sign things have clearly “changed,” but in a way they can’t believe! He fought in World War Two, protecting America, and Freedom of Speech, He worked hard all his life, and taught his kids to be patriotic like he. She stayed at home, raised their children, and kept their family fed, She taught the young to be respectful, and the Bible was nightly read. They saw “changes” in their America, honest politicians became dishonest fools, They witnessed the “Pledge of Allegiance” being removed from public schools. Their President openly ridiculed them, ’cause they disagreed with Government choices, They were shocked their President would criticize Americans for having opposing voices. Well, enough was enough they had finally decided on that warm and sunny day, So they joined a local Tea Party and now they’re called “terrorists” in their old age. And when their President mockingly said he was amused by those Tea Party folks, Those Tea Party folks remembered in November how he made them the butt of his jokes. And when “We the People” went to the polls in November of two thousand and ten, We voted out those who betrayed our trust, and in two thousand twelve we’ll do it again.
