Drain the Swamp by David Wilson

Drain the swamp

Of corrupt institutions

That serve their own purpose

Political pollution

 

Drain the swamp

Of career politicians

Who cling on to power

Without inhibition

 

Drain the swamp

Of litigant suits

Who smother the spirit

Of democracy’s fruits

 

Drain the swamp

Of corruption and vice

And ignore my past

I’m really quite nice

 

Drain the swamp

And fill it again

With liars and bullies

And millionaire men

 

So fill up the swamp

With intolerant laws

And scrap all compassion

Without even a pause

 

Replace what’s been emptied

With venom and hate

And boast of abuse

By person or state

 

Insult the disabled

And Muslims and queers

There’s nothing to stop us

At least for four years

 

Unless enough people

Sit up and take note

Democracy’s more

Than a quinquennial vote

 

Let’s stand and assert

That now is the time

To drain the new swamp

With its new stench and new slime

 

Smother lies with the truth

Meet hatred with love

Counter fear with true hope

Let your song rise above!
