Oh Donny Boy/Democracy’s Lament

To the tune of Londonderry Air. Warning! Contains strong language and political themes:

Oh Donny boy,
The blatant lies you’re telling
Stink to high heaven
And right back down to hell:

You claim it’s fraud
Is that a rat I’m smelling?
You say it’s fixed
But that you’ve won as well;

And I’ll be damned
If I hear one more slander
Upon the process
Of democracy;

And if you say
You won’t be going under
Without a fight
A fight there well may be:

For though you’ve mind-
Fucked half the population 
The other half
Must have their voices heard

And truly you’ve no right
To use intimidation 
You piece of shit
You ignominious turd!

So, Donny boy
Let’s wait till all the votes are counted
Before we say
Yours is the victory

And if it is,
we’ll just have to accept it
It’s imperfect,
but that’s democracy.

I was sickened at Donald Trump’s conflicting statement that the vote was fixed, and also that he’d won it, before the count was even in. If that’s not hijacking the democratic process then I don’t know what is. He doesn’t want to be President; he wants to be Dictator Don.

  1. Oh man Ingrid… Tell us how you really feel?!!! And you aren’t even from here! Kuddos to you for speaking out. His statement speaks volumes of him and this is good enought for half of the population. He’s just afraid of being carried ofin the Orange jumpsuit which I can’t imagine won’t happen in time! ❤️❤️👏👏👏👏👏

    1. It was just sickening to watch someone with so much power and responsibility stand there and blatantly lie… I guess I got a little angry!

      1. It is injustice in it’s true form and we have never in our history had someone so in humane. I know plenty that have KNOWN him personally and that speaks volumes of his character. Justice prevail but I will not let it disturb my inner peace. Love your truth and speaking up and out. ❤️👏👏👏

      2. It seems I’ll be wordless for the next couple of days, 🤣🤣🤣 Good to release that and I shared your poem with a lot of people. It actually makes me laugh everytime I read it cuz it was so authentic and I loved it!!! Have a good one until we meet again. And again, I love the unfiltered you!!! ❤️ 🙌🙌

  2. I hear you loud and clear … according to what we hear Biden is 6 seats off a win! tRump is doing what he does best … messing with everyone’s head 🙁
    He’s a sore loser and will incite violence as he’s done from the beginning, he’s not interested in your country only his own hip pocket!

    1. I just hope they will be able to move on from the violence! I’m British but that’s another divided nation unfortunately, with half the population thinking racism and xenophobia is acceptable and even right.
