The liberals’ overarching zeitgeist
Spend money, kill babies, fight Christ
They can’t resist the temptation
To rework civilization
In November, we will see them sliced, diced

The maid at the Holiday Inn Express was still badly confused about who she needed service first. Her manager, now very irritated, corrected her yet again.

“No, no. Not that dis guest room, but zeitgeist room!”
