THESE ARE THE THINGS MAKING ME PUKE

THESE ARE THE THINGS MAKING ME PUKE
(To tune of “These Foolish Things (Remind me of You)” by Eric Mashwitz and Jack Strachey)

A candidate who claims he’s been misquoted
A senator you’d think had never voted
Who always dodge and juke
These are the things making me puke

Lame wars that wane our military forces
Debaters acting like the ass of horses
Who then disdain rebuke
These are the things making me puke

Bridge 1 

We’re free, we vote
But don’t see or hear
Why Sinclair Lewis wrote
“It Can’t Happen Here.”

An act called Patriot, a cynic’s naming
A congress being bought and cold to shaming
A free press, free to spook
These are the things making me puke

Smiling Rick Scott who favors lax regulation
Profits would max in a child labor nation
And Sarah Koo Klux Kook
These are the thinks making me puke

Bridge 2

The air, turned sour
Corruption’s stink
Been reading Schopenhauer
He might be right, I start to think

The lofty few who say the poor are lazy
“Leave them to sink or swim, it wouldn’t phase me?”
Who think they’re kings or a duke
These are things making me puke.

A president who is a powder-puff guy
Yearns to be thought a Teddy Roosevelt tough guy
Whose hand is on a nuke
These are the things making me puke
