If US immigration facilities
Are like concentration camps
What other American things
Must we brand with the same stamp?
Surely general admission seating
At a Backstreet Boys show
Is like millions of innocent people
Killed in unspeakable rows
And that maddening line at the airport
Where I’m forced to remove my shoes
Must be in the same ballpark
As killing six million Jews
Or maybe a pop show is just a pop show
And we should be clever enough to know
That politicians are sowing division
With hyperbole and revision
And as they dump from the stump
They’re no better than Trump
Views on the news, delivered so smooth.
