The Lyrics

An old favorite that seems to be relevant after all these years
They're rioting in Oregon 
There's Covid in Spain 
And so damn many hurricanes 
They've run out of names
The whole fake news media obsess with the polls 
The President's nominees are raked over coals
The leftists hate history, the right hates the here and now
And all say it's Donald Trump's fault, anyhow
We've been disrespectful and fretful and loud 
The President calls on the Boys who are Proud
 And we know for certain with Soros around 
Some cop will fire a shot off 
And they will burn the city down 

There's locust plagues in Africa 
There's blood on the sun 
And if you protest peacefully 
I think you'd better bring a gun

My dad was a fan of the Kingston Trio, so I remember "Merry Minuet" Havent heard the song in.50 years, so had to hear it on YouTube. Second stanza was very funny to me -- Always laughed at "And I dont like anybody very much."

I think a lot of the leftists are motivated in part by self hatred. And a chronic lack of humor. That might be the biggest, and least appreciated difference between the two sides of this conflict. I first heard "Merry Minuet" about 30 or so years ago. It was topical then. And remains so today. You almost don't need to change a word. But, of course, I did.

I would venture that many of the Trumpists are the ones full of self-hatred. Good luck, Pat.

today, Jan 6, 2021, "they're rioting in Washington" and COVID is everywhere, especially bad where crowds gather with many in the crowd not using face masks.

I wonder if there is a way to be notified when someone leaves a comment on a parody months or even years later. The attack on the Capitol was the culmination of a long, very strange year. And the basic, underlying problems are only getting worse.
