The Washington Spin Stories

Politicians tell us stories spun with blue and with red.
They talk and they shout, tryin’ to get inside your head.
This time around, they ain’t doin’ nothin’ new,
‘Cause two women said some things that were both really crude.

Racism, Roseanne Barr. Name calling, Samantha Bee.

The reds support Barr ‘cause Trump’s their millionaire;
They say Samantha Bee should be taken off the air.
Blues say they oughta just let Samantha be
‘Cause Rosie is a racist, that’s the difference. Don’t ya see?

Spin, that is. Anything goes. No holds barred.

The Washington Spin Stories!

Well, now it’s time to right our heads.
Forget ‘bout all their spin.
Their rhetoric divides us all.
Keeps Truth from gettin’ in.

The Truth must overcome our politicality,
‘cause both these things are wrong,
Says the Bible we all read. 

Think on it. Pray a spell. Take your lenses off.

We’re all God’s kids now! Y’hear?

This is my silly little song about the current political spinning of events that keeps us distracted and divided. This kind of thing makes us label and distrust one another. But if we take a good hard look at what is right and wrong and refuse to accept what is wrong no matter how someone else spins it, we will be able to move forward together. Typically, we know something wrong when we hear it, but we let politicians change our minds and make it okay. We have to start doing our own thinking. Wrong is wrong. Period.
