(To tune of, “My Man’s Gone Now by George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin and Dubose Heyward, from American Folk Opera, “Porgy and Bess.”)

Chavez’ gone now
No sense in one listening
For his bristling tirades
‘Gainst us devil Yanks.

Chavez’ gone now
Populists feign grieving
Middle-class folks leaving
Praise the lord in thanks.

He destroyed a country
Once so rich and vibrant
An economic tyrant
Those who could, all fled

He destroyed a culture
Once so proud and hopeful
Now another dope will
Read the lines he’d read

Chavez’ gone now
The narcissistic ravings
Expats who’ve lost savings
Do not mourn him dead
