It Was Funny Once

It was funny once,

But it isn’t funny now;

Personal attacks.

Congratulations! We are

The laughing-stock of the world.

Trying to look tough

We’ve made ourselves look foolish.

Racism and hate,

Islamophobia, greed,

We are an embarrassment.

This is uncalled for!

Leaders of the free world

Do not act this way.

Hop back into your clown

Cars and rejoin your circus.
