The Lyrics

This is about the trials of General Michael Flynn, and the absolutely unprecedented move by Judge Emmit Sullivan to refuse to accept the decision of the DOJ to dismiss the charges against General Flynn -- as if he actually has the power to appoint himself prosecutor and jury
I hear mandamus comin'
It's comin' round the bend
I aint had due process since
I dont know when
Cause I'm stuck in Emmit's courtroom
He means to do me harm
But this train of abuses
Should set off three alarms

When I was just a colonel
My mama told me "Sir"
Always be a smart boy
Dont trust those Deep State curs
But I shot down Iran sellout
Just to watch it die
Now I need a whistleblower
Expose the FBI

I bet ol' Comey's writing up
His phony fake memoirs
He'll prob'ly cause us Nazis
While joking with Bill Maher
Hell, he's really got it comin'
But he'll go Scot free
Cause Ms. Lindsey keeps a-punting
And that's what torments me

Well, if I finally escape this madhouse
If allowed to speak my mind
I'd say we crossed a Rubicon
And Emmit's crossed a line
Cause here in Emmit's courtrooom
There aint no rule of law
And if we accept this loathsome bullsh*t
Will be our last hurrah

If this whole episode can't be called a travesty of justice, I don't what else it could be. I don't agree with some of the language but it isn't the first time I've heard it (retired Air Force sergeant here). Free Flynn and do it now!

Yeah, Johnathan I rarely resort to what you are referring to, but what better matches the situation .. and "lonesome whistle."
