Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

He should be leaving, gone away,
do a stretch of hard time for what he’s done.
From his blame for this fiasco he opts to run.
In this crime he played a big part.

Rick needs a hoosegow number;
he put the Flint residents through hell.
They should put this ahole inside a cell.
Rick needs a hoosegow number;
though he didn’t act alone
His cronies, too, should be in fetters;
they don’t atone.

They poisoned a whole town, try to dodge blame,
and they’re all still thriving, but others—no.
To save a few bucks, a cheaper water flow
that’s toxic from the very start.

Rick needs a hoosegow number;
they should put this ahole in a cell.
His depredations made people unwell.
Rick needs a hoosegow number,
though he didn’t act alone.
His cronies, too, should be in fetters,
then graybar home.

He tells himself “not guilty” lies
while folks from Flint get sick and die.
He’s well-versed in deception art.

Rick needs a hoosegow number;
they should put this ahole in a cell,
“We didn’t know”’s the line he tries to sell.
Rick’s deeds made some folks “slumber,”
but he never will atone.
Crooks like him never get in fetters,
they freely roam.

Rick needs a hoosegow number.
Rick, cheap dolt makes folks suffer.

Speaking of "under a bridge," I want to thank the two trolls who apparently expressed their support of my policies with their votes.

Was thinking of that word last week, but couldn't find a use for it or OS that would fit it. Bravo! 555! From 1800s Mex-Spanish Juzgao. Now, can you do something with pokey ;-)

Well said, JB. Now let's start the circus as the pols start using this. I thought we had something like $700 billion set up for infrastructure back in 2009. The pipes have been rotting longer than that. Where did that money go?

I wonder how many of those responsible for this fiasco drank the contaminated water. Nice job!

Lying hypocritical media shill is a lying hypocritical media shill.

Didn't hear you hypocrites calling for a lynch mob back during the Colorado gold mine spill incident. Probably won't hear a peep out of you the next time there's a contamination incident in a Democrat-run hellhole like, say, New York or Connecticut.

Good point, SMD. I'll sign off on prison for Rick Snyder, as long as all the Democrats who have been in charge of Flint and Detroit for the past century or so, and who bear far more responsibility for this fiasco join him there. And if we're going to pull the ultimate responsibility routine, fine, send the head of the EPA to prison as well

Wake up, morons! Rick KNEW, he KNEW!!! It was his job to know! Now that he owns it, what's been done? Nothing, because there is no money! President Obama has to step in after TWO YEARS!!! How could Rick Snyder NOT KNOW???!!! He should be forced to drink Flint water in prison!

Ooooooooooo, burn!!! Got 'I'm good Mister Barry. Good comeback!
DMS - January 24, 2016 - Report this comment
Same question can be asked of the dozens of Democrats who were closer to the scandal, GAS. How could the NOT KNOW?? HOW COULD THEY NOT!!! Hey, I can use the Cap Lock Key too, folks. That's why I think about a dozen of them should share Rick's water
