WHO’S YOUR DIXIE DADDY?

WHO’S YOUR DIXIE DADDY?

Sons of the Confederacy
Please listen to me
Are you absolutely certain
Of your family pedigree?

Lots of rebels went off
To fight for ‘Old Dixie’
But only a few made it back
And fewer of those
Came back intact

So before you spout
Pride in your heritage
Have your DNA tested
To prove your ancestry 

You might find a carpetbagger
In your live-oak family tree
Or a handsome mulatto
Hidden among the leaves

And you’d realize to your dismay
You’re not the son of a Confederate
Rather, you’re just another
Repugnut conservative hypocrite

Hi Kimmy.  I have to snicker a bit because there is this ongoing controversy in my family about our family tree.  I am related to Thomas Jefferson....and my father used to be so racist....and well Jefferson was known to have had an affair with one of his African American slaves and had children with her....so I tease my dad asking him how he knows we are related to Jefferson and his wife Martha and not his slave mistress?  It gets his goat!   Lol....but it is a thought!  I found your poem said a lot....especially at the end... we are all beautiful no matter our background...racist hypocrites and all...lol   I enjoyed. xox Cherie
