The Wreckage of Barack Obama
(Sung to the tune “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald)
The legend it goes from the pundits on down,
of the slimy morass they call DC
Those there they say on that 20th day
Will not find the Presidents job easy.
With the defeat of Al Gore and the policy we abhorred,
left the democrats positively screaming.
Would it be Hilary or Barack that would lead the pack,
to the shiny White House there a gleaming?
Obama was the pride of the Liberal side,
a lawyer like many before him.
With an electoral push, he would save us from Bush,
and who could not help but adore him!.
A mandate he gained by defeating McCain,
as insipid a candidate offered
On the 20th day, yes they finally held sway;
it was now time to plunder the coffers!
The Stimulus bill swore it was business it would kill,
as it sent the poor Dow Jones a reeling
The rich folks they say sent their money away
to the Cayman’s, the Swiss and New Zealand!
An Omnibus bill had more targets to kill
so laden with pork it was squealing!
Cato they said this bill sure is dead
as the US was now sent a-reeling!
The Libs gave him thanks when he nationalized the banks
we said, America we hope that it helps ya…
By late 2010, the Dow Jones it caved in
we said, America it’s been good to know ya!
DC wired in they had red ink coming in
As the zeroes in currency gained commas
The USA was screwed when China called in bills due
Came the wreckage of Barack Obama!.
Does anyone know where the sense of pols go
Is it locked up in some lost committee
The Americans they say the US might have been saved
If the choices on ballots weren’t shitty!
Today Tom and George would be holding their gorge
If they stared at the state of the nation.
They would slap them too after slapping me and you
for allowing this abomination!.
The Senate passed gas while the House Reps they burped
from the massive pork on which they were feeding!
SCOTUS was silent while the media chirped.
’It’s a new form of governance we’re needing!
And farther below where the fifty states go
you could hear their economies crashing
some how it seemed, it was another Bush scheme
But since the 20th, he was doing his own thing!
The USA came clean, filing chapter 13
swept the Constitution into a trash bin
The new flag was red, 50 yellow stars instead
with a hammer and sickle to smash them!
The legend lives on from the cheated on down
Of the hypocrisy that they call DC
When they say its time for change, you will know they’re deranged
And your pockets and wallet will be empty….
