The Lyrics

He'll bankrupt the nation,
Bring on damnation,
Check "Revelation,"
His head's incised.

He's the devil in disguise,
Oh yes he is
The devil in disguise.

He fooled them, playing Christian,
But the faith he's demeaned.
Heaven-sent? No, but try Hades.
The Beast has made the scene.

To truth, he's a stranger,
Once owned the Rangers,
Hangs with deranged turds
Who craft his lies.

He's the devil in disguise,
Oh yes he is
The devil in disguise.

Some thought they were throwing sevens,
When they rolled out three dice.
The bones rested--there on all three,
In Roman math: VIs.

Outstanding pacing, rhymes and wordplay (the "Roman math" line was ingenious, I think)....and the anti-Bush stance was a bit more subtle than most parodists use. Still, calling a political enemy the antichrist has been done a bit too often (generally speaking). 5-3-4.

Thanks, Alvin. Ingeborg, yeah, but it's been done metaphorically. Bush really is the AC; but thanks for the comments.
