"This Is Our Congress"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

While Barack Obama believes the world revolves around him, I feel there are others who deserve recognition for making the United States what it is today.
This is our Congress, paid more than worth
This is our Congress, scum of the earth
To Marx they swear allegiance, like Bolsheviks of old
For this is our Congress, the bought and the sold

The gather from the East, the North, the South
And from the states out West
There hearts are filled with greed and lust and sleaze
With favors for their cronies, and to hell with all the rest
Our Country will be brought down to its knees

For this is our Congress, foe of the Right (1)
This is our Congress, voting by night
To take away our Freedom, depriving us of choice
For this is our Congress, ignoring our voice

An unread bill two thousand pages long
It almost broke the shelves
To cram it down our throats, they'd like to do
The line that really matters: the one where they exempt themselves
They're not bound by laws like me and you

For this is our Congress, arrogant sods
This is our Congress, think they are gods
But watch out this November, the peasants are annoyed
When we finish voting, they'll be unemployed
(1) Right: righteousness or political conservatism, take your pick. Either one fits.

Unimpeachable humor! Here's 555 recall votes. ;D

A bit harsh, but more and more deserved by Congress with every "passing" day. Thank God for the snow hobbling D.C.! (Now I sound like Pat Robertson.) Excellent --> 535 members plus 20!

True words wrapped in an excellent parody! 5's

In the second stanza, change "there" to "their" and I'm with you all the way!

And to think I used to be a proofreader. With the massive snowfall in the DC area, all the "non-essential" feds get a free vacation at our expense. If they are non-essential, why are they on the payroll?

Harsh, but truthful! But well written parody you wrote! I echo all comments above! 555.

When the truth is nobly spoken, respect must be paid! 555 darts to throw at Pelosi's picture... ;) (hahaha... I kill me...)

Yeah, a bit harsh, but well written and kinda funny in parts.

Harsh? Actually one has to temper one's emotions when expressing them in a public forum. Fiddlegirl, I haven't played baseball in years, but when I see Pelosi's picture on TV it makes me want to pick up a bat again. I guess it's just the high cost of new digital sets that stops me.
