racist generals green with age.
Once such men were all the rage,
killing to keep owning slaves.
You gotta admit, they looked brave
on their green horses, on pedestals,
so “beautiful” were those generals
as all the monuments to war
obscuring what all war is for:
killing in the name of _______.
(Fill in whatever beautiful cause you approve of.)
Those Confederate generals will be missed
by mostly guys who think the South was dissed
by Abe Lincoln and abolitionists.
The rest of us don’t give a ______.
But I agree with Trump when he
said we can learn from history:
Racism and violence we should resist.
We need more monuments to pacifists.
