The Protesters Anthem

Since 20-some percent of the NFL "Professional" (and I use the term loosely) athletes, a smattering of other similar "Professional" sportsmen(?), along with some of their handlers/coaches and owners/masters, clearly have no love of this country, its flag, its music, its opportunities (which include their ever-swelling personal bank accounts) - and probably not even of God Himself - I thought I would write for them their own "national anthem" to sing while they doth protest on bended knee while they are taking the liberty of scalping their fans (no longer am I one) on Sunday afternoons. 

With much regret to Samuel Francis Smith, his My Country Tis of Thee and to England, I now present to you "The Protester's Anthem" (sung to the tune of God Save the Queen):


MY COUNTRY TIS OF THEE,
A SOUR LAND FIT ONLY FOR BENDED KNEE,
OF THEE I CONTINUALLY DING.

LAND WHERE MY FATHERS DIED!
ONLY FOR THE ELITISTS PRIDE!
FROM EVERY RIOT SITE,
LET PROTESTS RING!

MY SLAVE-BUILT COUNTRY, THEE,
LAND FULL OF ELITIST GLEE,
THY NAME I WILL NOT LOVE.

I HATE THY ROCKS AND RILLS,
THY MIDDLE CLASS, THOSE LOWER STILL,
MY HEART IS HARD AND I'M SO THRILLED,
FOR ALL THAT ABOVE.

LET RIOTS SWELL THE BREEZE, AND, 
PROTESTS RING FROM ALL THE TREES;
LET'S SCREECH OUR SONG.

LET ALL MORTAL TOUNGUE'S AWAKE;
LET ALL THAT BREATHE PARTAKE;
LET OUR ROCKS THEIR SILENCE BREAK;
HEAR THE GLASS FALL ALL DAY LONG.

OUR NEW GOD IS TO THEE,
AUTHOR OF ANARCHY,
TO THEE WE SING.

LONG MAY OUR LAND BE BRIGHT,
WITH RIOTS HOLY FIRE-LIGHTS;
PROTECT OUR RIGHT TO FIGHT!
GREAT SATAN OUR KING!
