The Lyrics

As hinted in my first comment about Kathleen Mavourneen, I intended to parody TOS while the saga of the healthcare.gov website unfolds in congressional hearings.
Your wake spewed so much pain, Kathleen;
You bossed H.H.S., smiled with pride.
You shared your smarts with clever mien,
Since first you spurred Obama's ride.

Your poses' fall has left you meek;
You botched them, made a way of lies.
Your choice is bad, don't care to speak;
Your fears seed imminent demise.

Kan-sas will take you back, Kathleen,
To where our heartland's real, not vain.
And when O. yields to freshmen keen,
Final make your journey home by train.

She was formerly governor of Kansas. The "freshmen keen" are first- or second-term conservative representatives.

My "freshmen keen" footnote should have included Senators Cruz, Lee, Paul & Rubio.

Kansas doesn't want her back.

After "resigning" today, she should ride a train through the "real America" back to Kansas, but probably won't.
