July 13, The Texas Power Grid
The power grid froze down in Texas;
Their government did not take note.
Instead, their right wing legislature
Sought ways of restricting the vote.
So what, if the power grid’s failing
And some poor bloke freezes and dies,
That’s no cause to start regulating,
Except for the voting franchise.
Right wingers all hate socialism
And distrust majority rule.
So, they all support legislation
To maintain minority rule.
The welfare of all of the people
Was not ordained by God above.
Restricting the brown and black voters
Is a right wing labor of love.
If people rise up in high dudgeon
And threaten to go to the polls,
Conservatives say the solution
Is keeping them off voter rolls.
The power grid freezes and fizzles
But that is not worthy of note.
If poor people die in the winter,
Then there will be fewer to vote.
And here is one last observation.
Last winter, when his people froze,
Ted Cruz took vacation in Cancun:
Their problems, no skin off his nose.
