Jolly Old Ron Karenga
—A Kwanzaa Carol, to the tune of “Jolly Old St. Nicholas”

Jolly old Ron Karenga,
Marxist to the core,
Torturer and murderer,
Academic whore,
Hit upon a plan to make
His ideas hold sway;
And invented the brand new
Kwanzaa holiday

Every night a candle’s lit,
And in Swahili
Those observing celebrate
Marxist hegemony,
To isolate their hearts from
The land where they live
To dwell on past grievances
And to not forgive.

One can only hope blacks are
Mostly too abashed
To heed Ron Karenga and
His concocted trash—
And rather than follow him
Into endless night,
They’ll reject Ron Karenga
And his Kwanzaa rites
