Bush Gets Look At Protesters Near His Ranch
By Tony Peyser
A grieving Mom wants to know
Why her son had to die
A black Surburban kicks up dust
As it quickly passes her by.
Cindy Sheehan sweats in the sun
To give hope to me and you
Vacationing Bush raised millions
At a neighbor’s barbecue.
The windows in Bush's motorcade
Have all have been darkly tinted
Perhaps that's why he's unaware
A new Rosa Parks has been minted.
It wasn't wise from day one
For the president to ignore
A Mom who's now a folk hero
To millions who are anti-war.
