Lady Liberty’s Headlights Lead the Way
Lady Liberty to world:
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
New York Shitty to Lady Liberty:
Shut up and SHOW US YOUR HOOTERS!
