A Fond Farewell

The white man
has had a good run
but it looks anymore
as if that’s coming to an end

In his day
he made life hell
rascal that he was
for man and beast and tree

Still let’s not forget
the white man gave the world
bicycles and 3-D porn
and lots of other good things

And let’s not think
too badly of the old boy
as he rides into the sunset
whistling “Yankee Doodle Dandy”
