City of Roses Dodges Antifa Bullet for Now

The City of Roses and site of many a micro brew
Dodged the bullet from Antifa’s call to violence it spewed
Only 13 arrests, no one wounded or killed
Willamette River better than a police line for parties to chill
But before we pat ourselves on the back and jump for joy
The potential violence of Antifa seething under the surface wanting to again deploy
Portland runs the risk of being another Beirut but without the safety of a Green Line
As the factors that unite us as Americans look more and more that they will unwind
Antifa was there not to discuss or even try to with opposing views reason
In their universe anyone supporting Trump is guilty of treason
If a man is guilty of treason rules against violence no long apply
Duty to beat or kill until with an anti-Trump view he complies
Antifa F*bombs and fingers drown all chance to rationally debate
For Portland a City of Roses violent clashes loom as its fate
