“ Only the strong will survive and the weak
(a certain small-city Texas mayor wrote)
will parish.” Assistance you should not seek.
The Don’t-Mess-With state messed in a freeze
was no time for politicians to bully and gloat.
But with their homegrown energy grid on its knees,
this home-spun Emerson took to Facebook to speak
upon self-reliance: “your lazy,” he did note,
a poor raising gave you a socialist streak.
The governor, Abbott, pointing at AOC,
made a claim both electrifying and rote:
he blamed it on the Green New Deal-what cheek!
(I do love that parish — evangelical spellcheck?)
If reasonable people choose not to vote
we’ll all find ourselves up the proverbial creek.
The late Limbaugh’s dittos, hateful and bleak,
bray ideology trumps service. Quote:
Only the strong will survive and the weak
will “parish. “ Assistance ye shall not seek.
