O Crucible of Specious Lies
Tune of America The Beautiful
|O crucible of specious lies
And greedy raves of gain,
Where dollars vote, there freedom dies,
Washed down the swirling drain.
They shed disgrace on thee,
And drown thy good in pools of blood
Across the shining sea.Where dutiful in riot gear,
They wield their pepper spray,
Their stun grenades, as they draw near
Amid the asphalt fray.
They shed disgrace on thee
Debase their soul in crowd-control,
Crush law and liberty.
O bounty for the financier,
Granny Paige and the Raging Grannies of Greater Westerly, Rhode Island
