New Names for a Non-Binary Nation
Ty Seidule has victory at last
Against the dead, whom fiercely he’s maligned.
A whole new set of base names is assigned.
The present can obliterate the past.
The heroes that he never would have sassed
Back when they rode for Dixie, steely-spined,
Titanic Ty can now, delighted, grind
Into the dust. It happened really fast.
Behold: progressive forces celebrate
Ty’s triumph over every Rebel name!
Greatness lies redefined – not by the great
But by the petty. They pursue an aim
Too trivial for noble souls to state.
Dwight Eisenhower hangs his head in shame.

Outstanding and well presented. Southerners should remember that the US government, the US military has for political expediency and through cowardice chosen to disrespect our ancestors, tear down the memory and monuments of our southern heroes whose courage and honor has never been up for debate ..their bravery and effectiveness as soldiers was never a question to the union soldier on the opposite side of the filed...but things have "fundamentally transformed" as we were promised...which brings one to question...why defend a country whose dishonorable centralized, despotic government actively maligns you, your ancestors, your heroes, your culture?
