I am a Happy Bigot

I am a happy bigot,

cast as cruel and cavalier;

all are equally esteemed,

let me make that clear.

 

I am a happy bigot,

conscience gets my vote;

this mild minded contrarian

has no bile stuck in throat.

 

I am a happy bigot

but dissent not allowed;

can we calmly contend

far from madding crowd?

 

I am a happy bigot,

I’m mild minded – not mean;

don’t dare shout me down

with such shutdown spleen.

 

I am a happy bigot,

nuance begs for room;

why mock mercy message?

Christ-phobic, I presume?
