Hymn of an Embattled Republic

Our eyes have seen ingloriousness,
folly of the fools,

who trampled on our constitutions,
took us for their tools,

unleashing fearful fictions
through their rallies, hateful speech.

Don't let their lies march on.

Truth deniers, coup of hoopla.
Falsifiers of hysteria.
Great deceivers' propaganda.

Don't let those lies march on.
