The Lyrics

Don’t you love it when politicians who take their marching orders from BIG donor special interests (possibly clandestine foreign ones, thanks to the Supreme Court) have the gall to speak in the name of “the people”? Talk about taking the horde’s name in vain.
“People.” Creeps speak of “the people”;
These presumptuous creeps’ll make me hurl.
They’re swindlers, thieving ripoff villains
Who are venting their blowhard pride. . .
Hide their real aims—they’ve lied,
Acting for their billion-
aire swindlers.

Mother’s take in vain name “the people”;
These preposterous people make me hurl.
They’re just blurtin’ bromides.
That’s all they’re blurtin’.
A spieling team of aholes
That make me laugh,
On floor roll
They’re just mumbling words,
These turds, really cursin’
We the people.
Creeps who speak of “people”
From the bucks-giving people
Take the word. . .

While they’re cursin’
All but special-i’ persons
Who dig down deep for these trolls;
In their pockets are the pols
Who are mumbling words,
These turds who get pursin’
From the people,
Deep-pocketed people,
Who are running their sheep shills—
Friggin’ scourge.

So true. Mark Twain said that the only individuals who are entitled to use the word "We" are reigning monarchs, editors, and people with tapeworms. ;D

Yet another free masterclass from the skewermeister his-self! Since it was especially piquant, I'll leave 555 in the donation box on the way out...
