1991.06.20 The President Malevolent

This was published at 911blogger.com on March 7, 2008.

There once was a president malevolent

Who took the law of the country as affrontery.

So he said to his henchmen:

"Don't be back-benchmen,

Get into drugs and gun-runnery.

"It may seem a bit crummy

In this way to make money

To stir up the rabble

And flood 'em with babble

While they sit there and say, 'Ain't it funny.'

"But to hell with democracy.

It's just old-fashioned hypocrisy.

The world is OUR oyster

And there's not enough moisture

To feed all those blithering sops you see.

"We knock off the hard 'uns

The John F.'s and Bobbys and Martins

Send the young 'uns to jail

The dumb 'uns to Yale

And some to California with pardons.

"We've got wars and AIDS to get rid of the scum

Whores and parades to satisfy some

While the boys at Harvard

Talk starboard and larboard

Having fun keeping mum and the shit in the bum.

"The truth, in fact, is plain to see

That's the problem with democracy.

So thank God for Dan Rather

And all of that blather

On the news every night on TV."
