the charge of the hobbyhorses

Pipe and tabor player, morris dancers, and hobby horse, from the era of James I. (1897)
the charge of the hobbyhorses
“Certainement qui est en droit de vous rendre absurde
est en droit de vous rendre injuste.
(Certainly any one who has the power to make you believe absurdities
has the power to make you commit injustices.)” - Voltaire

I

half a wit, half a wit,

half a wit gathered,

all hobbyhorse mounted

and marxism lathered.

“forward, dada brigade!

“ban all the Things!” xe said.

such idiots useful all,

antifa: pawns red.

II

“forward, dada brigade!”

lemming-like, soros-paid,

not though such stooges shunned

'ventual bloodshed:

theirs not to truth perceive,

theirs not to thought conceive,

theirs but to true believe -

such idiots useful all,

antifa: pawns red.

III

“nazi”s to right of them,

“nazi”s in front of them,

“nazi”s surrounding them!

Neighbor and Town-bred:

“secretly fascist cell!”

this they could surely tell -

idiots useful led

under the piper's spell,

antifa: pawns red.

IV

flashed cudgels, nails bare,

flashed pepper spray in air

at ev'ry “nazi” there.

charging absurdities:

all lies they've been fed.

unhinged and unashamed,

unleashed on those defamed

Town-bred and Neighbor.

Yet the fake news unblamed

even protected,

their idiots useful,

antifa: pawns red.

V

Statues to right of them,

Statues in front of them,

Statues surrounding them!

History widespread!

Offends the urgent now!

It must be purged somehow,

as did pol pot & mao!

a new dark age vanguard

with violence as their vow,

such idiots useful,

antifa: pawns red.

VI

stooge fascists on parade,

cloward and piven made,

brainwashed, jackbooted.

Scorn will heap each decade

on this dada brigade,

antifa: pawns red.
