Sunday Morning Poetry Throw Down – Debate Edition

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before but I’ve been very busy lately! Now my schedule has suddenly cleared up just in time for the Sunday Morning Poetry Throw Down. I’ve missed a lot of news but I’ll try to catch up. Here’s my submission for this week. It’s not very good but I did entertain myself so …

You walked into the debate
Like you were walking onto a markeeb
Your eyes strategically dipped to see your shoes
You sure looked like one big dweeb.

You’re so vain
You probably this vote is about you
You’re so vain
I bet you think this vote is about you
Don’t you – don’t you?

You had us several years ago
We were still in the dark
You said there’s no blue no red just one.
But now you’ve just lost your spark.
You gave away some things for votes
And now you are one and done.

Pop had some dreams- they were clouds in Bill Ayer’s head.
Clouds in Bill Ayer’s head.

You’re so vain
You probably this vote is about you
You’re so vain
I bet you think this vote is about you
Don’t you – don’t you?

Well, I hear you went up to South Korea
And were overheard on a hot mic
When you said you’ll have more flexibility
Because this will be your last reich.
Are you where you should be all the time?
Or are you playing golf?  Or sneaking ’round on the down low?
’round on the down low?

You’re so vain
You probably this vote is about you
You’re so vain
I bet you think this vote is about you
Don’t you – don’t you?

Don’t you?

  1. What beck’ning pol, along the moon-light sage
Invites my steps, and points to yonder stage?
    Tis Mitt!–but though my smiling face is bored,

    How brightly gleams his well-rehearse’d sword?

Oh ever conserv’tive, ever nerdly! tell,
Is it, in Denver, a crime to speak too well?

    To bear too shallow, or too glib a heart,

    To sham a leader’s or an expert’s part?

Is there no bright reversion of the day,
For those who gladly bow, or wend their way
    From slopes to tees to islands filled with rich?
    And whose burden cares include a heartless bitch?

    Now seems the time when networks cease to barter
    And I must change my trade from boss to martyr.

    (with apologies to Alexander Pope)

  2. -with appropriate humility I offer this-
    Muslim Brotherhood Gives Barry a Pep Talk
    (To the tune of “Everythings Coming Up Roses”)

    Finished? We’re just beginning and there’s no stopping us this time!
    We had a dream, a dream about you, brother.
    It’s gonna come true, brother.
    They think that we’re through, but brother,

    You’ll be swell, you’ll be great
    Gonna wow ‘em with how you debate!
    From Egypt to Iran
    Brother, everything’s going up in flames!

    Raise the debt, raise the tax!
    It can all become fixed with the stats!
    Take a break, drink champagne!
    Brother, everythings going up in flames!

    Now’s your inning. Stand the world on it’s ear!
    Set it spinning! That’ll be just the beginning:

    3 am! Hit the snooze,
    Besides lives, what could we all lose?
    We’ll be swell, we’ll be great!
    We can tell, just you wait,
    That 3rd world war you hoped for will come true!
    Brother, everythings going up in flames for us and for you!

    You can do it, all you need is a hand.
    We can do it, Hil is gonna see to it!
    Turrets up! Light the fuse!
    Muslim’s need more excuses to use,
    You can help with the ruse
    Just a word or a vid
    Justifies them all blowing their lids.
    Everythings going Jihaud and Sharia!
    Everythings going Chicago – style politics!
    Everythings gone New World Order and Big Brother!
    Everyones gone all vacation and empty chair!
    Brother, everythings gone up in flames just for us and for you!

  3. And some dare tell ME I ought to write a book? Day-um, lady, that’s excellent.
    Also, now the song is earwormed on me like a fat boy on pie.

  4. I tried to write one using You’re a Rich Girl, but it didn’t turn out well. My respect deepens for those who can do this.
