Let Us Have a Civil Conversation

Let us have a civil conversation, they say, as they cut food stamps, and medicare, and social security.
Let us have a civil conversation, they say, as they cut taxes on the rich.

Let us have a civil conversation, they say, as children are stolen, by the authority of a badge and a gun, and taken away and locked in cages.
Let us have a civil conversation, they say, as protesters are beaten, homelands are invaded, and the oil  companies bidding is done, and they build a pipeline and then the damn thing bursts and destroys the land for miles around.
Let us have a civil conversation,  they say, as the president starts an unwinnable trade war with the whole world, but exempts companies doing business with  his daughter.

Let us have a civil conversation,  they say, as the police continue to kill civilians  with impunity.

Let us have a civil conversation, they say, but keep your  hands off my guns!

Let  us have a civil conversation, they say, as they incarcerate millions of people  just for having a little weed, that wonderful herb that makes you feel all  funny  in the head, and could show us the way  to world peace,  if we would only let it.
Let us have a civil conversation, they say, as they deny millions of people the medicines which would  give  them a long, and pain free life.
Let us have a civil conversation, they say, as they cut funds from public schools to give subsidies to private schools.

Let us have a civil conversation, they will say, as the blade of the guillotine slices through their miserable, arrogant, eminently sliceable necks.
