Effigy

May 20th, 2010

If you with someone’s policies don’t agree,

They it’s normal to hang and burn them in effigy.


Of course, burning in effigy is not the best thing to do,

But when you don’t have the actual person, you have to make due.


Left wing protesters used to Burn Bush effigies too,

Which I never thought was a good thing to do.


But where, Foxists, is your condemnation,

When the offenders are part of your Tea Party Nation?
