Coeur d'Alene Stands Up Antifa Stands Down (Wise Move)

In the 50’s in Northern Idaho the roads had poetic signs on Burma Shave
Catchy lines selling the close shave that the product always gave
Not in rhyme but with messages to call to arms
“Impeach Earl Warren” before his decisions do great harm
Don’t forget to “take the U.S. out of the UN”
Not if but demanding a sooner when
To the north, the Aryan Brotherhood spewed out its right wing hate
With the John Birch Society to do everything to prevent us from becoming a Communist state
Students were exposed to the Communists as Masters of Deceit
Who would go to any length to gain power by lies or by cheat
Ruby Ridge and the Aryan Brotherhood have now faded away
But the need to protect private property is here to stay
No surprise that when the rest of the country met burning and sacking
Coeur d’Alene was a peaceful oasis with many citizens packing
To try to burn down the shops on Sherman Avenue or 3rd Street
Antifa would have had to have had a death wish as armed violence it would meet
Defunding the police is an idea that really needs to be shelved and dismissed
But if it occurs in Coeur d’Alene, the residents would still live in bliss!
