Machine Head’s Robb Flynn has shared a new poem tilted “Vomitous Creatures And Cretins.” The piece was written following the treasonous pro-Trump insurrection at the United States Capitol, which occurred earlier this week.
Here’s the full poem:
“Charlatans with no morals, have brought us these sorrows, and we have no one to blame⠀
But ourselves we’ve allowed, what can only be now, called a moment of national shame⠀
With confederate piousness, standing tall on the Dias, armed gunman plunder our Congress⠀
When American flags, are replaced with Donald Trump flags, only now do they⠀
see how we’ve regressed⠀
Fiery speeches, puked by lecherous leeches, the vomitous creatures and cretins⠀
Conspiracies shouted, her truth has been routed, as liberty lays raped and beaten⠀
And we would be fool, not to call this a coup, months in the making this game⠀
Too little too late, did the tech giants wait, as the country went up into flame⠀
The police remained calm, as white men looted on, the Qanon’s who feigned so much disgust⠀
At when Kaepernick kneeled, because black boys were killed, in silent protest to the unjust
They attacked freedom‘s property, then claimed that it ought to be, OK to kill black kids for the same⠀
God forbid it was Target, that might make them a target, police trigger-fingers itching to tame⠀
Black folks died for fake $20’s, for toy guns they lost plenty, 2020 our national reckoning⠀
Now in 2021, the Maga’s have come, to the tune of Trump’s pied piper beckoning⠀
And with nary a scratch, a few cans of teargas, to the terrorist attempting a coup⠀
They looted with amnesty, to democracy’s travesty, oh to be white, in the red, WHITE, and blue”
Despite receiving some praise for the poem, it appears others have sadly decided to threaten Flynn over his frequent political posts. He said the following about that:
“Good times in my DM‘s today. Just a little taste. Listen to me… I have literally dealt with this for 30 years. Before it was in mail and hand written letters, then it was emails and message boards, now it’s DM’s and the comment section.
Just so we’re all crystal clear… I am not going anywhere.
I will not shut up.
If you don’t like the things that I have to say on my personal Instagram account, Unfollow. I’m not here to please you, or give you some watered down version of what you think somebody in metal band should be.
Don’t agree with my politics? Go ahead and Unfollow. Zero Fucks given. No one is forcing you to be here. You are free to speak your opinions here, as long as you are respectful and not spamming, and I keep a pretty long leash on what is “respectful”
“Shut up and stick to music”? I’ll do just that… By singing songs like a “nation on fire”, “Davidian”, “clenching the Fists of Dissent”, “ in comes the flood“ and “halo”.
And for those of you who did write this to me, consider this a warning. I purposefully left your names off of this post. This is the last time I will do that. Let there be no mistake, I will not hesitate to Dox you the fuck out.
I’ve been a public figure for most of my adult life, I’m used to people threatening me, I had over 1000 death threats after the “racism in metal“ video. I still get death threats at least twice a week. I accept it for what it is.
But the second people start threatening my wife and my kids, you’ve crossed the line, a line I will not ever accept.
Don’t believe me? FUCKING BRING IT!!”
