Once again posting for Dear Old Dad ™. Here's his latest expression of distaste with Republican shenanigans...

A Republican World
(With apologies to Louis Armstrong, Bob Thiele and George David Weiss)

I see fields of black...an oil spill,
I see it spread...it ain’t a thrill,
And I think to myself...a Republican world

I see skies of grey...clouds of soot,
Polluted days...and nights to boot,
And I think to myself...a Republican world

The colors of the great Gulf, once pretty to the eye
Are oil-covered surfaces that people can espy.

I see friends shaking heads, sayin’ “Who is to blame?”
They're really sayin’, “It’s a cryin’ shame.”

I hear babies cry...they whimper so
With food stamps gone...they just won’t grow
And I think to myself...a Republican world

The tops of once green mountains, now rocks beneath the sky,
The lack of proper health care for the folks who just will die.
I see girls shaking heads sayin’, “Aren’t we free?”
They're really sayin’, ”LET US BE!”

I hear babies cry...If they’re rich, they grow
But if they’re poor, you never know...
And I think to myself...a Republican world
Yes, I think to myself...a Republican world
