[Full lights! Nuclear blast sound effect! Mixmaster JBrown cuts through the line of singers, bling blazing, mic in hand.]

We doin’ the zigzag no mo yo
Inequality be risin’ sharp bro
The 1 percent ain’t earned respect no
My stocks are down! why that? – whoa!

[Background singers take off their robes, revealing sexy environmental uniforms. JBrown dances spasmodically.]

Affordable Care Act yah brah
Carbon pollution nah brah
Working families blah blah
Employee pensions rah rah

[JBrown cuts in.]

Radically decarbonize the economy bro
Two tons of gas my target, ho
Send deniers to the gulag yo
On a green train bullet to the brain – go!

[Background singers.]

Medi-Cal spending yah brah
Water for the farmers nah brah
Fish need it all blah blah
Except for our swimming pools rah rah

[JBrown.]

Gots to get to massive fixin’ mo
Roads and bridges be failin’ bro
Climate is causin’ the chaos you know
Don’t tell me ’bout LA sewers – no!

[Background singers.]

Big budget surplus yah brah
Middle class jobs? nah brah
Feds and the prog tax blah blah
Minimum wage rah rah

[Music fades to dreamy utopian environmental sounds. JBrown speaks earthily into mic.]

Yes, it is clear that California is still The Great Exception. We dare to do what others only dream of. Difficulties remain, as they always will. That is the human condition. And finding the right path forward is formidable. But find it we will, as we have in the past and as we will again – with courage and confidence. All love to Jesus Christ. Peace out. Thank you.

[JBrown moonwalks backward off the stage. Background singers put their robes back on. Darth Vader beat returns. Stage fades to black.]
