As many of my readers know, I'm a recording artist (blues and country). I have refused to do rap for my entire career, not least because rappers do not in general sing, or play real instruments. However, I had to put that decades-long conviction aside when I saw this story. I have never used an obscenity or expletive in a column published here, but such terms are integral within rap music, and beyond that I shall ask you to forgive my very real anger that my country has made such a world-shaking sociopolitical error, and has no quick way of rectifying it. I have no title for this poetic synthesis of many of the themes I have been writing about for the last several years.


Think out loud and offer asides, that's how Trump rolls, that's the way he rides

He might believe that that locker room talk will do for us, that sh*t can walk

He's got to know what he says is a lie, but maybe he believes that pigs can fly.

The NFL, the Muslim tweets, Russia and Flynn, I wouldn't want to be in the shoes he's in,

There's so many itches he can't stop scratching, he doesn't give a crap that the whole world's watching

Now he plays it off the cuff like he was the victim, the tape's not authentic, it can't really be him,

He stumps for a fondler before a Democrat, though everybody's telling him to not do that,

Doesn't even like his girl child for being real, in the middle of him trying to make a deal,

He confessed to the words then, admitted he was wrong, now thirteen months later, it's a different song.

You just have to wonder if he's a crazy dude, he's more than just crude and stupid and rude,

He's said he wasn't perfect, and he had regret for a whole lot of things, and knows that we're upset,

He said he was sorry what we heard that night, and we must have believed he had set it right,

Because we elected him, put him in command, with the nuclear launch codes in reach of his hand.

An ignorant, racist, tax-dodging bullshitter, who gutted American diplomacy with Twitter,

My name is William Perkins Homans the third, but probably more people know me as the bluesman (and artist) Watermelon Slim.

I've been in the fight against war, fascism, injustice and inhumanity for 47 years. I was at MayDay, 1971, (more...)
