The Lyrics

North America's hope for the 2016 Olympics quickly changed to despair despite a pitch by the USA's First Couple. This OS was an obvious but difficult vehicle for a fiiting eulogy.
Wonderful One went to Copenhagen,
Fancied a pearl for his crown,
Wreathed in haloed light
On his merry flight,
Thought he'd wink and sink one down. #

In stunning grand wonderland Copenhagen,
Faulty cold mean IOC *
Said he failed to sway,
Sent him home that day
Singing "Copenhagen, wonder what blunder made
Copenhagen scorn me?"

"I nailed up the poster rack
And nailed down the prayer mat;
Threw First Lady wife into the fray.
And there she stood, stately like me,
With a welcome so charming and gay."

Wonderful One dared fool Copenhagen,
Tendered no pearl to his town.
'Neath his reading light
On returning flight,
On the brink of sinking down.

To underworld plunderworld doped Chicago,
Paltry and lean news brought he.
Alpha male no way,
Coming home to stay,
Singing "Nope, Chicago; Rio down-under stole
Copenhagen from me!"
# A slam-dunk, as in his favorite sport, basketball * International Olympic Committee (not "I Owe Chicago")

Where were those 200,000 screaming Germans when he needed them? By the way, you can't write a song about a radical liberal to music from Hans CHRISTIAN(!) Andersen. ;D

Even the magic of Oprah couldn't sway them.

This is marvelous! Lots of good lines, but the 2nd verse was a particular fave. :D [And it's increasingly evident that "the king is in the altogether"...]

Haha! Good shot! On the downside, Eric Holder was in Chicago today to pave the way for more millions of taxpayer money into the city to "fight youth violence." Anyone want to get up a game of midnight basketball? ;-)

Thanks to all C/Vs. You win trips to Brazil in 2016. Rio is the future; Chicago is the past. All those O's couldn't change that decision.
