A FOUL AND CRUSHING TIDE

A FOUL AND CRUSHING TIDE
(To the tune of, “Long and Winding Road, by Paul McCartney, as recorded by Paul McCartney and Wings)

A foul and crushing tide
of autocracy
I never thought I’d see.
This tide roll over me.
He answers to, “My Liege.”
Our rights are under siege.

Who’d justify the means
by his own evil ends?
One who pretends to love
free democracy.
While our Due Process Clause
he shreds to self-applause.

Every time he tells a lie
there’s people who’ll believe him.
Prove to them he’s told a lie
the fools will still believe him

This turning from the truth
feels so sad I could cry
In pain, I wonder why
our founders had to die.
We need them here today.
We’ve surely lost our way.

TRUMP WILL BE PRESIDENT

TRUMP WILL BE PRESIDENT
(To the tune of “Little Girl Blue,” by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart)

Intro

When his campaign began
I thought it was all in fun.
Another game to stoke his name
To my chagrin he’s won
And nothing feels quite the same
Dems sit and wonder who’s to blame.
Worry reigns over DC
Worry raindrops fall on me

Verses

I sit here and feel the raindrops
Storm clouds have sent
Feeling all spent.
Why am I feeling like the raindrops?
Trump will be president.

I sit here and mourn the future
Under this gent
Who’ll not repent
Why do I worry o’er the future?
Trump will be president.

Bridge

What can we do?
What can this man do to us?
Have you read Sinclair Lewis?
Threats He wrote of should clue us.
Not to trust, this con man
We’ll soon call
President Trump.

Reprise Bridge

Why feel so glum?
Although this is a bummer
He’s winter’s cold harsh Drummer
In four-year’s-time may come a
Summer, wise man
To dethrone
President Trump.

THE GOP STRATEGY

THE GOP STRATEGY
(To tune of traditional children’s song, “She’ll be Coming Round the Mountain”)

Shall we vote on immigration?
No, we shan’t.
Shall we vote to fund the nation?
No we can’t.
No, we’ll spend good time on drama,
flaunting health care and Obama,
cause our right-wing delegation
wants to rant.

Shall we go on with obstruction?
Yes we shall.
Keep that R&D deduction
for our pals?
We think Rubio is dreadful.
Of baloney he’s a head full.
But we hate Obama, that’s our
rationale.
