Resistance



Students?
Children of genius!?
I hold here before you,
The recently updated history book.
That your parents have given,
Their permission and approval to release.
And I have been given the opportunity,
To read one of the many wonderful chapters...
You will find educational, uplifting.
As well as a unique way to interpret the facts.
The facts as our ancestors and we,
Know them to be.

This chapter entitled: The Resistance.
Subtitled: No Better Time For Candlelight.
And this takes place in the Summer of 2022.
When the evil Liberalites fought long and hard
Their battle against the peaceful and love giving angelic Conservatives. Toiling to save,
Humanity from the weapon bearing...
Leeches.  
And then,
This miracle unexpectedly happens.
Here goes...

Once upon a time.
Not too very long ago.
An anointed re-enforcement movement,
Appeared stampeding...
Upon a dawning clear morning horizon.
Kicking up much angel dust.
And wildly waving,
Freshly printed wolf tickets.
And closer the leader of the pack,
Costumed in a tailor fitted cubscout uniform...
Began yelling atop,
A tank trimmed in rhinestones.
And made from layers of cardboard.
Soon shouted out demands,
To several meticulously manicured poodles.
Adorning golden helmets pulling the tank.
To prance. And strut. To prance. And strut.
And this they did to do done,
Magnificently.

Rising from their beds with excitement,
Voices of cheer and merriment were heard.

'Honey?
Look here from the window.
The day has come.
He...the fixer of the impossible...has arrived.
Our fierce leader approaches.
As if anticipating a huge crowd,
At an unannounced campaign rally.'

'The seriousness?
He has the look of a determined,
Beyoncé dancer.
And has come to assist us to assist him,
Assisting others assisting him assist us...
In the overthrowing of our way of life.
Although...
With thought to give it,
Makes little sense.'

And there you have it students.
Just one chapter of this captivating book.
Being unloaded in every school,
In which our scholars are craving...
For this kind of truth to them taught.

'Uh,
Will these new revelations do any harm...
To my application for my Doctorate's degree?'

No.
No and why should you be,
That concerned about that now?
Your parents have chosen,
This school and its gifted students...
To advocate the promoting,
The truth of our values and principles...
We must keep protected to defend.
And besides...
Your parents have always been relied upon,
To donate hefty bucks to 'The Cause!'

Any other questions?
Before anyone leaves,
Pick up your copy of this fantastic...
Truth dripping telling of our history!
