Something I’d Like To Say If You’d Get Off Your High Horse
I know the world wants you to see us
as something to pity.
I know the likes of Taylor Swift and JD Vance want you to think we’re still in the dark ages.
But make no mistake.
We are as submissive as we are barefoot
we are timid as we are uneducated
we have a mouth full of teeth
ready to bite the hand that tries to feed us the narrative that we are less because of where we come from.

A first rate voice for the world of snobs…
Amen and Amen again. Appalachia needs a strong voice and in you I feel we have found it. Sing on sister of the hills, give all their due, who think we are less because our
land rises up to greet heaven early.
