The Lyrics

SAD.
Well, I woke up Wednesday mornin'
With my FaceBook page consumed with disbelief.
And I went through all the stages. Felt depressed.
Then angry. Stupid. Back to grief.
Then I ate three pints of Ben and Jerry's--
Yeah, I know, but damn, that stuff is sweet!
And I kicked my dog, and shaved my cat, and
Called up all my Muslim friends all day.

The fact that Hillary won more votes, somehow
It doesn't make defeat less bitter.
And I'm tryin' to fight the cynical idea that our
Republic's down the shitter.
And I notice that our President-elect
Has been let off his leash on Twitter!?
So I shut down all my social media accounts
And joined the crowds out in the streets.

On the post-election talk shows
Pundits' minds severely blown!
KKK is celebratin',
Clinton smashed his saxophone!
And through fears and tears and sighin',
Still I'm lifted by this sound:
On the streets a million marchers:
Post-election comin' down.

In the park I saw a lady
With tamales and burritos she was sellin'.
And I passed a local farm that had to plow
Up all their strawberries and melons.
Then I headed back for home and I was just
In time to catch J. Law on "Ellen"!
And it made me proud to see two women
Standin' up for lesbians and gays.

All the late night comic monologues
Reachin', stretchin' for a joke--
Got to feel bad for Obama
'Cause his legacy's been smoked!
Still there's one small consolation,
If the planet's still around:
2020's not that far off--
Donald Trump is goin' down.

Bob, take your own advice and move to Canada. You were so sure of your victory. You lost, get over it already.

Very well written. Captures the feeling of subdued sadness of the original. As for the KKK, the whole nationwide membership wouldn't fill the stadium at a Friday night high school football game in Texas. Just because the Klan may celebrate Trump does not mean Trump celebrates the Klan. Unfortunately, it seems a lot of people around here are judging parodies by the content of their politics and not by the quality of their writing. This one deserves to be recorded.

Thanks, Patrick, and Concerned, for your comments. You know me, like Tom Petty, I won't back down.

Here Bob, take some 5s from me. It's the least I can do while you grieve your loss.

Patrick, regarding the KKK numbers- they're off. They are based on the daylight Klan and not the more traditional night time Klan that does not generally release numbers. Some former members, however, have stated that they have thousands uncounted in certain areas. Add those to the estimated 5000-6000 often quoted by hate group monitors and the number is actually around 9000 and growing. The Klan endorsed Trump in their paper, The Crusader. They believe they can raise membership to to 40,000 in Trump's first term. But this would be a far cry from the height of Klan membership in the 1920s when it was between estimated 2-4 million strong. Back then the Klan was involved in Government and most police stations in the South. Open violence and lynchings were popular and accepted by "decent" white folk who opposed race mixing. Now in the 21st century the Klan is using online methods to intimidate, is trying to develop local cyber warfare skills, and some plan to form paramilitary groups known as KLAS (KLan Action Squads)! The 33/5 will soon give way to the 33/6. However, membership fees including clothing and other paraphernalia on avg costs hundreds of dollars that rural and other poor, uneducated and unemployed whites cannot afford.

Good parody

The last time I priced a Klan robe, it was around $100. Too steep for something I couldn't wear in public. I think the ADL and the SPLC have an interest in exaggerating the numbers of Klansmen. The 1920's Klan was basically a unified organization with a leadership structure that embraced "respectable" businessmen and politicians. One of the owners of the Negro League Kansas City Monarchs baseball team was a Klansman. As for supporting Trump, who could imagine the Klan voting for Hillary? Maybe they should have endorsed her so they could use the "guilt by association" trick. I think most "Klans" these days consist of one guy with a fancy title and a post office box.
