Least Favorite Things

Children in cages, while parents go looking,

Hopes into horrors, and little is cooking.

Walls between people, and nothing takes wings.

Here is our list of detestable things!


Dreamers are sullen, yet villains are pardoned.

Children in cages look pale and woolen.

Health care’s no given, and lovers are cordoned.

Just look at the list of detestable things!


(Refrain)

When the Trump bites,

When his words sting,

When we’re feeling mad!

We’ll line up to vote. So give him the gate!

And then we won’t feel so mad.
