The Lyrics

The more things change ... The OS, which is 62 years old starts off with the line "They're rioting in Africa." I heard this song a lot as a kid, because it was a fave of my Dad's
They're rioting in Africa
There's grift in Ukraine
There's searing heat in Oregon
And DC's insane

The world is being fractured into extremist poles
The Red States seek freedom
The Blues more controlled
Israelis hate Hezbollah
Sunni Muslims hate Shi'ites
And it seems like just everybody hates the whites!*

But we cant be tranquil and hateful and smug
For man is now plagued by a function-gained bug
And we know for certain that some Fauccing day
Someone will cause a lab leak
And we'll be forced to hide away

They're rioting in Africa
They're sick in Wuhan
What normal flu wont do to us
WIll be enhanced by our fellow man (Twang!)*
The original line (which is spoken) is "And I dont like anybody very much!" .... *Song ends on a dischordant guitar note

Oh, the Protestants hate the Catholics,
And the Catholics hate the Protestants;
And the Hindus hate the Moslems,

A song that never goes out of style. The remarkable thing about the rioting in Africa, and one that portends the fall of the regime, is that normal middle class people are starting to lose their fear of defending themselves and their property. Nothing makes the wokists more outraged than that.
