Import This, Europe

You think you’re so smart,
Mr. European Gay Man!
Well, we didn’t bring homophobia
to Uganda. It was already there!
We just sprinkled some salt—MSG
more like—on it to make it more
tasty! We warn’t talkin’ about killin’
anyone. Lookit you there, all tall
and blond, pointin’ that perfect
pointy nose in the air. Go back to
your lame-duck, decadent, all-gay
Europe whatever, Heinrich.
The Muslims are waitin’ for ya.
