Against the racist fiends of Germany
Did Shea’s heroic daddy bravely fight—
Or, well, he loaded bombs heroically.
Bombers, equipped, would set foul Deutschland right.
Bombers would make those racists see the light
And finally embrace both blacks and Jews.
These love bombs were delivered via flight.
Mark Shea’s dad made it possible. That’s news!
A segregated army? Don’t accuse!
Southern types helped the effort? Don’t defend!
The point is that the Nazis had to lose
So that Mark Shea, in our time, could pretend
He signed Emancipation Proclamations
In all the unenlightened Axis nations.
