The Lyrics

I am back! I had some RW priorities to get sorted but here I am again. The NFL players kneeling for our anthem (And WNBA players walking out on it) gave me time to pause. There is a time and place for peaceful protest and it isn't in a sports venue. There is NO racism in the Star Spangled Banner and as far as I am aware, the dead and wounded in our battles and wars are why we have the right to peacefully protest in the first place. Even in Europe, they do not allow such displays of malcontent. I analyzed the full standard Four Verse SSB and I found no racism in it... but as I analyzed, I saw a parody burbling to the surface of my mind. Here you are...enjoy! Notes: Gillian and Dave - X-Files stars
O say can you see, by the stadium's light,
It is o'erpaid athletes taking knees for our anthem,
Claiming racism broad in spite of millions earned..
Can the military dead please rise up and damn them!
And the ticket holders glare, before footballs hit air,
Gave proof that their stunt was ill advised out there;
O say does Our Oft Mangled Banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free but we still have some knaves!

'Cross the shores dimly seen were some Hollywierd gits,
And kneeled they did, sending signals to their brethren,
Hollywierd then did flare.. spraying boatloads of shit!
These celebs of dull mind, 'twas the US they're leaving?
And Gillian's screams and Dave's mental high beams!
In full idiocy shown, now will they please stop screaming!:
'Tis Our Oft Mangled Banner, O long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and of Liberal tirades!

And where are the owners who so vauntingly swore
That the game of football wouldn't suffer this delusion
What of military dead from our battles and wars?
There's no refuge for players and anthem naysayers.
No racism was found in these words so profound
As NFL things get burned on the ground!
And Our Oft Mangled Banner in triumph doth wave,
O'er the land of the free and the lives our dead gave!

O thus be it ever, when the people demand
we discern between sports and war's desolation.
As our troops make the peace so that protests can stand
And suffer us not sacrifice deprecation
Then we'll hold back our cash until they fiscally crash,
The Sports Corporate need to take out the trash!!
And Our Oft Mangled Banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and all speech enfilades!
