Hang-on to your Christian values.
Honor your Mother and Father.
The new times and seasons want to erase our beloved history
as if the freedoms they enjoy are not their heritage.
As if it is shameful, and all those people in the past were
xenophobic, homophobic racists and to share a tradition
with them is sacrilege.
We grow and learn from the past and honor each little step
that has made us better.
I suppose you need to cross the sea with King James at your back
as many of your beloved died sick on the journey. I suppose you
need to reach the shore and find a barren land that taunted your hunger.
And I suppose when you found a bounty of wild turkeys to
quell that hunger you might give thanks.
But it's not the heritage of the woke ones.
Their greatest suffering is... is...
Well, I guess I just could not see their suffering
as they pop down to the deli for a turkey sandwich.
