OK

Today President Obama made a beautiful characterisation of Mitt Romeny as the "reverse Robin Hood," or as Mr. Obama put it,"Romney Hood."

This reminded me of the old 1950s television series titled "Robin Hood" and its catchy theme song, the "Ballad of Robin Hood." The song was later parodied by Monty Python in the version of "Dennis Moore" who was obsessed with lupins. Anyway, for those of you who do not remember the series, here is a link to the song and its melody. Robin Hood.

Of course we cannot now resist writing an appropriate ballad for Romney Hood. And it follows after the orange squiddle.

The Ballad of Romney Hood

Romney Hood, Romney Hood, sitting on the board,
Romney Hood, Romney Hood, piling up his hoard,
No taxes please, jobs overseas,
Romney Hood, Romney Hood, Romney Hood.

He bought once prosp’rous comp’nies and he saddled them with debt,
And turned once pensioned workers to the street,
And where once homes and offices were bustling and well kept,
Are now just vacant buildings choked with weeds.

Romney Hood, Romney Hood, sitting on the board,
Romney Hood, Romney Hood, piling up his hoard,
No taxes please, jobs overseas,
Romney Hood, Romney Hood, Romney Hood.

And now he’s running in the fall to be our president,
Ashamed of all the history he’s made,
And will not show his record of where all that money went,
And all the taxes that he hasn’t paid.

Romney Hood, Romney Hood, sitting on the board,
Romney Hood, Romney Hood, piling up his hoard,
No taxes please, jobs overseas,
Romney Hood, Romney Hood, Romney Hood.
