The jokes just write themselves.
A group of protesters met up at MoKaBe’s coffee house in Tower Grove South at about 8 p.m. to go over lyrics to social justice holiday carols. They planed to carol in the Central West End and possibly Flora Place in the Shaw neighborhood later tonight.
They distributed copes of a “caroling for justice” song book with modified lyrics to popular carols. Lyrics to “White Christmas” included: “They’re dreaming of a white Christmas/just like the ones the bigots know/Where justice is missing and fairness isn’t/Because fairness and justice they don’t know.”
This has hit written all over it.
“Life is Hell,” sung to the tune of Silver Bells, included the lyrics: Life is Hell, Life is Hell/It’s a racist time in the city/Ring-a-ling, hear them sing/Slim hope for justice today.”
They may not stop racism, but they could make everyone die laughing.
