Americans are looking less and less
Like Shea. He’s pitching this as dreadful news
For anyone who doesn’t share his views
On race and welfare and contrariness.
Black voters, he imagines, will progress
To futures in which Democrats can use
Black votes to win in every case. Black dues
Are paid. Now it is payback time, I guess.
Americans are looking less like Shea.
This isn’t a surprise, of course. It’s fate.
Any resemblance caused acute dismay
When it was there. It’s gone? I think that’s great.
It’s a delightful change in one clear way:
It means Americans are losing weight!
