My Trump-rage brought back to mind a favorite from the Lyndon Johnson/Vietnam era protest music genre. Most people remember Steppenwolf from "Born to Be Wild" (the first popular lyrical reference, I believe, to "heavy metal"). This is the long title track from "Monster."
The spirit was freedom and justice
And its keepers seemed generous and kind
Its leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
Now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watchin'
