Talking Lawn Sign

Talking Lawn Sign…


It’s time to make up your mind
the primary’s over and so is your sign
You were feeling the Bern
Now you know it’s her turn-
put up a sign for Jill Stein

Can you forgive the DNC
Faking neutrality
And putting in the fix
For their nominatrix
In the name of D-mockracy?

You can break out of your bind
Help the Green Party get online
Whether you own or rent
All they need is five percent
So put up a sign for Jill Stein

Now I hear you sayin’ Listen Fred
Clinton ain’t that far ahead
And every vote for Jill
takes a vote away from Hill
-We could get the Donald instead!

Relax. Clinton wins in a landslide
Wall Street is all in on her side
And the Pentagon, too
and the SEIU
Trump is just a comic who died

And millions of women know the truth:
eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
And they will raise a voice
for their own freedom of choice
in the privacy of the voting booth (quaint expression)

So it won’t be Trump. But bear in mind:

Qaddafi was killed at her command
The president would not stay her hand (or could not)
And what a merry laugh
she had with the chiefs of staff
Watching Libya disband

Assad was next on their list
Russia helped Syria resist (so far)
Will the neocon queen
escalate the scene
Extending Bibi’s “right to exist?”

In their Cold War that never dies
Putin is Stalin in disguise
And the Ukraine
Is Loyalist Spain
George Soros, progressive and wise

We need every penny they waste on war
So much real stuff it should go for
Housing, education,
Public transportation
Thousands of bridges to restore

Don’t fall for the lesser-evil line!
Let’s get the Green Party defined (it’s about time)
Whether you own or lease
The issue is peace
Put up a sign for Jill Stein

We gotta start somewhere
And she’s already there
So put up a sign for Jill Stein
