Ban the rich and ban the poor. Ban everyone 'til there ain't no more. Ban the blacks and ban the whites. Ban every color from having rights. Ban the free and ban the slaves. Ban each person every day. Ban the big and ban the small. Ban every size, just ban them all. Ban the good and ban the bad. Ban the happy and ban the sad. Ban the smart and ban the dumb. Banning can be lots of fun. Ban the gays and ban the straight. Can all people to make things great. Ban the women and ban the men. Then go and band them all again. Ban the old and ban the young. Can every age before you're done. Ban the healthy and ban the sick. need someone to ban? Take your pick. Ban the state and ban the feds. Ban the blues and ban the reds. Ban the right and ban the left. It's anyone's guess who's banned next. Ban the dead and those that live. Ban the takers and those that give. Ban the pious and the ones who sin. Then go ban Hell and God's Heaven. Ban all borders and ban all insides. Ban all truths and ban all lies. Ban it all and ban nothing too. Don't stop banning 'til the only one left is you.
