The Lyrics

the world flocked to America it has been their aspiration
you know we were begun as an immigration nation
now entry to our U S A has become ever so hard
tea party says they’re not welcome not in my back yard
now that the Donald’s been elected America’s new president
we wonder where all the reasonable voters went
at your speeches you say that you are a good fighter
but your rallying violence proves that you are not a uniter
you raised some hackles with your raised right hand ‘nazi’ pledge making
does that mean your government policies will be equally earth-shaking
you have proven you are the best - if I may, ahem,
at not letting anyone interrupt you while you are interrupting them
Donald now that you are part of the elected American aristocracy
our once immigrant nation is now a full-on fascist corporatocracy

I don't see any connection between this set of lyrics and "Ode To Billy Joe". As I recall OTBJ was a rather lengthy song. I can't even match the first line to the melody. Are you sure you didn't have some other OS in mind?

I found it easy to match your lyrics with the pacing of the OS. By the way, the public did not elect Trump - the electoral college did. Clinton got at least 3M more votes.
