The Lyrics

On and on the debate goes. Will it ever end? For all of our non US readers and authors there has been a bitter debate going on in the US over this issue of abortion since the Roe V Wade decision to allow abortion on demand became the law of the land circa 1973. Choose to choose or choose for life.
Roe V. Wade.
One side finds it loathsome,
Roe V. Wade.
Cannot pardon those ones.

How you choose, for win or lose makes news now and then,
Some say the right to choose is just so wrong,
Will one side ever win?
On and off again.

Roe V. Wade.
Controversal bill, Oh!
Roe V. Wade.
Makes some want to kill, oh!

Funny thing this this cloven thing as each side cries for their choice,
Each side scores a bullet, eye to eye they stood.
The unborn have no voice.

Roe V. Wade,
Who and where's your side on?
Roe V. Wade,
Nothing you can slide on.

Funny thing this this cloven thing as each side cries for their choice,
Each side scores a bullet, eye to eye they stood.
The unborn have no voice.
It's simply life or choice.

Funny thing this this cloven thing as each side cries for their choice,
Each side scores a bullet, eye to eye they stood.
The Choicers like the choice,
The Lifers got to voice,
They don't see the choice,
They speak for unborn voice.

good commentary...it is certainly ironic that some pro-life advocates would kill doctors for their cause

Echo's Alvin, sorry I couldn't give you high marks on funny, I think doing so would be an insult to your work because it clearly wasn't meant to be funny.

Stuff like this usually gets voted on on political lines. I'll leave my own views out and rate this 555 as a well-done satire of a social situation.

TGV, there is some serious satire at the site. Some voters will substitute "quality" or "cleverness" etc. for "how funny" where appropriate. I'm thinking Guy won't be insulted by Fives, but I could be wrong.

alvin - what is even more ironic is the fact that most pro choicers are against guns and the death penalty where pro lifers are for guns and for the death penalty. It makes good sense if you think about it. Walt - Tha-tha-tha-nks. Dear Gay Voice Person - It is mostly understood on this site that when a song is a bit serious as is this one that "funny" gets changed to whatever is appropriate as in "sad" or "serious" and then voted upon accordingly. If the voting radial dial's description said "How Ironic" then it would be appropriate for this particular parody but since one size fits all we just adapt here. The parody had a simple theme depicting two sides that refuse to move an inch, an analogy of Dr Suess' story about the northbound Zax and the southbound Zax. The gist of the story is as follows: The story of a North-bound Zax and a South-bound Zax. By some freak of luck, they both happen to be walking on the same imaginary line and eventually meet up with each other. The North-bound Zax, being a North-bound Zax, cannot go any other way and waits for the other Zax to move. The other Zax is a South-bound Zax and cannot move out of the way. He only moves south. Each Zax demands the other move, and the other refuses. They begin to brag about how stubborn they are and how they will never move. If you are indeed gay as your handle suggests it may not bother you in the least about Roe V Wade since you would never have to make a choice about choice. In all actually I'd rather not even see voting on the site. I am way more interested in the commenting than any votes. That's my choice. The only thing that is puzzlng about the Dr Suess story is what about the other Zaxs that are not on a collision course. What happens when they reach the north or south pole? Thanks for your comments and insight.

Not familiar with the story, but I sure do get the message, Guy. Well done. 555

Not into this particular vein of politics, but very well done..555

Thanks - Kris & AFW. and TT you are right. I am not even close to thinking about being insulted. I don't care much about votes. I just enjoy writing reading and commenting and the commeradery that we share on this fine site. I never judge a parody by the quality or quantity of votes it has. I judge it on how well and clever it is and what others have to say about it. THANKS ALL!

This is an evenhanded reminder that "The unborn have no voice;" but maybe I am missing something because I don't think the parody is up to Guy's normal high standards. The parody does not maintain the difficult rhyme pattern of TOS and I don't understand why the verb tense is changed in the "Each side scores a bullet, eye to eye they stood" line.
