The divisive woman from last years GOP convention
Passed through my city yesterday with little a mention.
Not one coworker came to me to speak
About how much this woman meant to them this week.
How they couldn’t wait to get off work to buy her book.
How much it meant that she was in our city to look
At the sea of conservative white faces waiting to get her take
On BIG government, family values and the morality we fake.
Not a mention in my mostly right-wing company
About this woman and her legacy and the future of our country.
Not a mention was made at the morning staff meeting.
No one bragging to sneak out during lunch for a book signing.
As I turned on the TV after the day was done
I realized that the news had focused on this as if it’s a phenomenon.
They are focusing on this woman as if she is a saint.
As if even the ones who hate her love hating her for Pete’s sake.
Every channel was a buzz as I continued to surf
Through the channels of nonsense and media coverage turf.
The conservatives see her as their new Messiah it would seem as they chat.
How her quitting the governorship and selling a book is their big come back.
The liberals sarcastically cover her book as if it should be read
To point out the lack of substance they see in her head.
Both sides continue to rally their troops in the meantime
For this woman who is happy to cash in on this media crime.
As we fight two wars, employment and global warming continues
The media would rather us focus on this woman and her venues.
On what cities she chooses to stop through and make alliances.
On what cities she chooses to ignore and stoke hatred and violence.
No one is talking about this but the media with their chatter
That would make us think that this divisive woman truly matters.
No one that I know conservative or liberal seems to care where she is.
Because we all have real lives and real issues that we all have to live.
