Middle Class Temptation
Look how far we've come–
Springing forth over
Even King's wildest dreams
Surely all races get an equal shot now days
Bold B Anthony's ambitious visions
Surely women are treated like domestic sex slaves no longer
We've come so far we can just
Shove Chavez's struggles under the rug
Surely farmers and all workers
The ones who nourish us all
Are doing just fine
All saintly swords
Dashed to plowshares
All change charged
With treason and heresy
