The Smirk

 

A respresentation of a Covington (Kentucky) Catholic High School student wearing a Donald Trump inspired red MAGA cap.

VERSE 1

 

In D. C., there was a confrontation,

 

Which, with the help of fake twitter accounts,

 

Attracted the attention of our great nation.

 

But which opponent would we denounce?

 

 

VERSE 2

 

The older was Native American.

 

A group looked down on by the bigoted.

 

He probably played percussion in the band.

 

Though his drum kit that day was limited.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Pressed on, no doubt, by safety in numbers,

 

Did the younger know what he was doin'?

 

Was it a master stroke or a blunder,

  

Being in character as Coach Jon Grudin?

 

 

VERSE 4

 

But the upbringing of most in the jury,

 

Favors an elder over a jerk.

 

Which is why some were in a hurry,

 

To pass judgment on the one with the smirk.

 

 

The End
