There’s a sinister threat to freedom,
prosperity and peace
that is slithering through the tunnels
in legislative grease.
From a platform that’s built on hatred
and ignorant “righteous” rage,
you have sullied the Lone Star emblem
across the global stage.
Running rampant beneath the mantle
it’s a mission of undermining
the thread of sanity
hanging limp in the minds of voters
confused by the disguise
who are filling their veins with venom
and rallying to your lies.
While slaughtering education
and help for the old and poor
and labeling gender nature
a condition in need of “cure,”
you spit in the face of Jesus
and mock his model of
the worth of a life that’s rooted
in charity and love.
But we are the sons and daughters
of heroes who’d never let
fanatics dishonor Texas,
and we have not spoken yet.
