June 25, The DOJ and Georgia
Let’s hear it for the DOJ
And for the civil rights division.
They’ll make the State of Georgia pay
For their black voting inhibition.
The voting laws that Georgia passed
Seem to be aimed, with great precision,
Just like Jim Crow laws in times past,
To cause black voting rights attrition.
Our new AG is filing suit
To challenge Georgia’s prohibition.
The DOJ suspects the root
Is racist and without contrition.
Now Texas wants to do the same
As Georgia’s racial ostracism.
For both states, it’s a turnout game,
Undemocratic, pure facism.
Restricting votes based on a lie
Deriving from Trump’s narcissism.
We fear democracy may die.
(Recall the 1-6 terrorism.)
The coming battle in the court
Is for the soul of our whole nation.
Now all the courts need the support
Of stronger federal legislation.
When voting is kept free and fair,
It is a threat to right wing power.
Red State lawmakers everywhere
All find the taste of fairness sour.
So, they’ll try to restrict the vote
Because too many black folks voted.
Our Ship of State can’t stay afloat
When voting rights are thus eroded.
