Here Comes Jumbo

Here comes Jumbo
American as gumbo
Skin white as new corn liquor hair black as molasses rum, though
He ain’t dumb, no
You elitist bums, go
Get yourselves off of Capitol Hill
‘Cause we’ve just about had our fill
Of y’all playing Columbo

This is the kind of political commentary in art that I want to hear. Subtle, clever, and no one’s gonna get it unless they’re listening intently.
