Hampshire College Bans Flag from Its Flagpost

The reaction to Trump’s win by too many students is like a tantrum of two year old temper
Too many faculty and coddled students in spoiled political distemper
From Play-Doh sessions to grief counseling to midterms to postpone
In an environment where conservative thought and speakers are in the no go zone
Hampshire College’s action to ban the flying of our flag from its flagpole now takes the cake
After flying it at half mast to protest Trump’s win what a colossal big mistake
The man has not even in the Oval Office taken his chair and already the coddled students vilify
His plans to restore prosperity a lemming mentality of faculty and students to deny
Better would be to ape DeNiro whose “He’s a punk….” script tossed into the trash
To wait and see and hope for the better before again to rant, demonize and bash
Who in their right mind would want four more years of a felon Obama Clone?
Anemic growth, no border security, but rising debt and student loans
Too many Hampshire College students graduating into no jobs, living still at home
You don’t always get what you want, rather than to tantrums and the streets an inward moan
A nation without borders, without a flag, without a common language and shared ethics and ideals
Is not a nation, only a mass of humanity on a path to a collapse soon to be sealed
To paraphrase the song against the Vietnam War “All we are saying is give Trump a chance.”
Watch the rising tide of prosperity and security over the next four years rapidly advance
