They Were Always Here AKA Storming DC.

They come with confederate flags,
they come with PhD's,

they come in screeching packs,
touting their snow-white pedigrees,

they come in three-piece suits,
armed with racist policies,

it's democracy they loot -
backed up by police.

For many years they've sown
their bitter, fascist fruit,

where it, ignored, has grown
to extinguish, taint, pollute

freedom, human rights, and equity,
everything we shóúld hold dear,

they've neither conscience nor integrity -
these fascists, they were always here.
