The Do-Nothing Party Wake

The Old Guard Republicans are on their way out

The party is over I hope to shout.

Out with the old and in with the new

They can't win anymore and oh boy are they blue.

Some are acting like Limberger cheesies

Ultra right wingys are becoming sleazies

Who stink a lot from stirring the pot

A bucket of manure is all they've got


Talk shows air mouthy liars and bad asses

Repeating false stories to work up the masses.

"Don't do what I do, just do what I say

Destroy your government; it's the only way.

Government is the problem not the solution

Don't listen to those concerned about pollution.

Get rid of the rules and finance regulations

Get rid of the borders that divide our nations"


Conservative ideas make republicans act radical

It's time for the old boys to take a sabbatical.

Obviously their ideas did not work out

It's time for them to go away and pout.

Forgetting to think, they cannot think rationally

Conservatives are acting irrelevant and radically.

They broadcast talking points and expect you to copy

Every word they say, even when it' is dopey.


Negative and obstructionist republican masses

In so much denial they are acting like asses

Asses that refuse to budge on the budget

To spend money on our country to support it.

These Republicans do nothing and sit on their hands

While chaos threatens to roll across the lands

Like when we had the Hurricane Katrina crisis

They do nothing but sit in their denial oasis.


The Do-Nothing Party is really celebrating a wake

They want their nation's government to drown in a lake

Of lawlessness and deregulated world finances,

Usurious interest rates and laissez-faire fancies.

To the banks they give plenty of the people's money.

With no strings attached, definitely not sunny.

Now we all wonder where all that money went

They cannot or will not account for a cent.


Republicans are not the only ones at this wake

Democrats, Independents, our whole country is at stake

What ever happened to the loyal opposition

Who could discuss and work to a consensus position?

Conservative distrust of popular government

Is not what the words of our constitution meant.

Popular government requires the input of us all

To take an active part lest our government fall.


To you who are tired of all these old farts

A new age is dawning so listen with your hearts.

Rejoice at this wake of the old, old guard

Their virtues are compromised; their hearts are too hard.

They have lost and they know it. Be glad!

Just laugh at them and tell them their ideas are real bad.

Tell them their unethical money god was a dope

And the New Guard of American Democracy is Hope!
