Pendulum Swings

The laws changed, but not the peoples thinking
Their power waned, they bit their lip
But then recession took their money
They let their poker face slip

Segregation ending they could live with
Their ability to stay among their own their crutch
But a President as a black man for them
And returned as so, proved for them too much…

They organised, came out and voted
While the liberals, divided, from the ballot stayed away
Alas, the pendulum swung back to the bigots
As chauvinism won the day.
