Congratulations Miss Lee
On your “Heart of Mercy” award
It’s a subtle thing, to wake the nations
But today you did

The sweat on the back of your knee
On the hottest day of the year
I don’t usually take ice in my water
But today I did

I could stare until I’m harder than teeth
Keep your keepsakes dry
You could rid yourself of all allergies
With your chin screwed straight

Indoctrination ain’t cheap
At the top of the mountain school
All the sherpas in all of Los Angeles will genuflect

All the wretched of the Earth but me
Drink the lake ‘til it’s dry
You could wash your hands of impurities
Get the kids scared straight

Infatuation for creeps
On the shortest night of the year
All the stepchildren and all of their mothers
Will say I did
