Hold the Line

 

 

The worse the evidence, the clearer too,
the more they will express their firm support.
Why should they even reach for what is true?
It’s something they are eager to abort.
The lie they need to tell they’ve told for sport
a thousand times before. They’re really skilled
at lying in the heart’s restricted court.
The beans that they contain will not be spilled.
Denial helps their dreams to be fulfilled.
Avoidance helps them seize some Z’s at night.
Those killed deserved, in some sense, to be killed–
and their dismemberment was wholly right.
Chaotic by imperious design,
Planned Parenthood’s supporters hold the line.
