You Can Keep Your Fillings

Europe’s in a crisis, they say there are too many refugees
There’s a war on with ISIS and sometimes the places people flee
Include countries such as Denmark, where this has caused much mental strife
If Copenhagen’s where they park, how will this change our way of life
The politicians fretted – at least on the center and the right
Various options were vetted to encourage refugees in flight
To consider other countries to which they may alight
Different possibilities – so to assist them in their millings
We’re taking all your jewelry – but you can keep your fillings

The Parliament debated for many weeks on end
To make sure the law as stated was one they could defend
They did their best to strike a reasonable tone
Denmark’s a nation of the west, where the Englightenment has shown
That we must live in peace with the German and the Swede
Even Italy and Greece – but as for those in dire need
Fleeing wars that we helped make that grew from the same seed
Hey no prob if you’re a sheik, but for those running from the killings
We’re taking all your jewelry – but you can keep your fillings

The so-called Social Democrats, caught somehow off-guard
Were not going around with baseball bats or burning crosses on the yard
“They can keep their wedding rings,” they said, “the kids can go and play
As we rifle through their things to see what we’ll take away”
The Social Democrats may find it’s a fair law they have made
Though it’s obviously designed to make some people afraid
Scared to look for safety in this country once invaded
In this nation that once joined the “coalition of the willing”
We’re taking all your jewelry – but you can keep your fillings
