A legend in my own mind!

Portfolio | Become A Fan
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Mass Lemming Syndrome
"Jim Jones Lives" by Mike Stevens
Long ago Trump's Titanic went down,
Yet passengers still cling to deck chairs,

Hoping it'll rise again to the surface,
Unwilling to face the reality it's over,

As today's Captain Smith rages
Unhinged conspiracy theories

A bath of ice water awaits their plunge
But does nothing to break the spell

Willing to die for the emperor who doesn't care
Pawns to be sacrificed to his greater good

Forgive them for they've forgotten how to
Function without Donny telling them how,

How Democrats must have pulled a dirty trick
Millions of fraudulent votes were allowed to stand

And robbed him of his rightful place as in office for life;
DAMN them; how true believers owe him to fight like hell

They hurl themselves over the cliff by the millions
Because he told them to jump, Jim Jones lives,
Mass Lemming Syndrome
