The Lyrics

While the US President wove his diplomacy in Russia and at the G-8 Summit in Italy, I wrote this partial summary of what he has done and is doing. At least the person who was immortalized in the OS switched his loyalty TO the USA's interests.
Gather 'round while I sing you of Barack Don Crown,
A man sans allegiance, his rule's by expedience.
Call him a fascist, he won't bring chin down.
"Ha, fascist pacifist," says Barack Don Crown.

Don't say that he's hypocritical; say rather 'animal political'.
"Kim's rockets are up, who cares where they come down?
We've got State Department," says Barack Don Crown.

Some have harsh words for this man-on-the-town,
But some drink each platitude. Should we show him gratitude
Like the workers and shippers in cold Detroit town
Owe welfare extensions to Barack Don Crown?

You too may be a prig Nero,
Once you've churned newfound greenbacks, worth zero.
"The Germans, French, English tied pollution counts down;
Damn coal-burning Chinese," cries Barack Don Crown.

In line 6, "who dares e'er shoot them down?" is better than "who cares where they come down?". But the best line is "Our rockets corrupt; do fair share: take some down." If "'animal political'." in line 5 is awkward, try "that he's tres-political."
