Dark Days – They Wish (Song) … Your Beer’ll Just Have To Wait

Just a few weeks ago I got a notification at Facebook of being tagged. It was a tag to a posting of a link to Stevie Wonder’s “I Wish”.  Seems the hearing of that song has always reminded a them of a me and our fond days of inhabiting a place called “Monico’s” in Pittsburgh back in the early 90’s.  A Rock ‘N’ Roll bar I bartended at part time around my radio schedule at WDVE back then. I responded back that I could still see myself playing the “air horns”, elbows up and dancing back and forth behind the bar, as if in choreographed unison with some unseen other members of the horn section, ignoring all drink orders until the song and my horns and imaginary bandmates were done.

It got me to thinking though. Could I maybe sing along with this one with some new lyrics as I’ve done quite a few times in the last couple of years deservedly skewering Great Leader/former great leader, the orange one, with some other tunes? Maybe a little something about our current state of surreal affairs? 

Yeah, I think I could. 

“What? You want a beer? Sorry, you’re just going to have to wait … hell, just milk it will ya? … I don’t give a fuck about your warm backwash … just wait … can’t ya see I’m air hornin’ and dancin’ and singin’ about some bat shit insanity?”

Dark Days (they wish)

Looking back on lost years and an orange headed lyin’ boy

Whose one and only con-cern was power and just how earn from ploy

We watched and listened sadly, the starkness of the thing

That had support too many, discipled GOP

Truth went out the window, propaganda became the truth de jour

Echoed many sides now, podiums to pundits even went on tour

The press tried too late stem tide, point out all the lies

But they opened up that window, just tryin’ now save hides

They were dark days … you’d … think we’d want no more

Some truly sad … days … attack norms at the core 

But some still want … those … days to darken doors

Now hold se-di-tious dreams, yeah, they hold a torch 

They hold a torch

The time came to be counted, a real count not a one that aimed at steal

Enough of us did stand up, a threat was posed and seen saw to be real 

But even then some hundred plus signed on to a deal 

To stand with former power mad with fraud as the new spiel

That led to insurrection, encouraged violence for a new rule

With help also from inside who even took some to tour of new school

Useful idi-ots follow dumb as useful tools

The Gaetz, Hawley’s, McCarthy’s fools who know the fools

They were dark days … you’d … think they’d want no more

Some truly sad … days … attack norms at the core 

But some still want … those … days to darken doors

Now hold se-di-tions dreams, yeah they hold a torch 

They hold a torch

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doodah doo

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Trump: “Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election”

“Big protest in DC on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!”

Olivia Troye: “very concerned that there will be violence on January 6th because the president himself encourages it.”

Ted “Bad Beard Breath” Cruz: “We will not go quietly into the night. We will defend liberty. And we are going to win.”

Trump and Jr.: “fight like hell.”

Jr.: “We need to fight.”

Trump: “They’re not taking this White House. We’re going to fight like hell.”

“… and we fight, we fight like hell, and if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

Giuliani: “Let’s have trial by combat´

Mo “Box of Rocks” Brooks: “… Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass.”

Trump: “American Patriots,”

“… We love you, you’re very special.” 

Trump: “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!
