Imminent Threat

We’re teachers, doctors, students in debt,Grandmothers, ministers, housewives, vets.
So here’s the thing that we don’t get:
Which of us is the imminent threat?

We work for a living our whole lives through,
Working three jobs when two won’t do;
Earning minimum wage, dragged down by debt,
So which of us is the imminent threat?

You take away our Medicaid and poison our wells,
You lock our kids in private prison cells,
We’re mighty angry, you can bet,
But which of us is the imminent threat?

You ignore the Constitution and the Bill of Rights,
You change the rules in the middle of the night.
But you ain’t seen the last of us yet,
’Cause you’re the ones who are the imminent threat!
