I hadn't heard of this guy until he was just on the radio singing this song.

Please post any poetry, visual art, or music about our political situation(s)

Well. . . You asked!!! LOL!

I call this Political Satire ala Musical Comedy! LOL! :D

Meet Randy Rainbow! He's been around for a while, it seems. But his notoriety has grown since Trump took office. He's now doing tours of his schtick! Amy and I are going to see Randy Rainbow perform in Provincetown, MA, next month. He's also coming around our neck of the woods and will be performing at The Egg, in Albany, NY (which is a bigger venue)! We might see him there, too. Amy and I haven't been in Provincetown in YEARS! It's a fun place, to say the least! This video is just one of MANY. I wonder if Randy Rainbow will perform this song during his live show. It's based off one of Gilbert and Sullivan's well-known songs. It's biting, and it's freakin' funny! LOL! :D

This is such a beautiful song. It was written in the midst of the civil rights movement and still today reminds us of the injustices black people were forced to live through. As a country we have made mistakes but also worked to solve some of those (institutional discrimination and racism). It is important for us to remember our history as not to repeat it. I like this song because as it points out the wrongs it also provides hope for future equality.
