The Lyrics

This is the most recent of a number of spoofs devoted to anagrams of the names of members of the major U.S. political parties: R-E-P-U-B-L-I-C-A-N-S and D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-S. In relation to the 2016 election, the spoof 'Great Anagrams' was posted here... http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/theirishrovers8.shtml
This land is my land, you claim it's your land,
Two different viewpoints - adore/abhor land,
A former wise land, now a polarized land,
Home of such animosity.

A SNIPER-CLUB o' anagrams -- stirred up REPUBLICANS,
From the West Coast's BLIP NURSE (CA) to CLEAN PUBS (RI) Rhode Island,
From Nebraska's SCRUBPAIL (NE) to Southeast's PUNBAILER (SC),
Wordplay from sea to shining sea.

Some folks wear Scramble-hats -- MAD SECTOR of DEMOCRATS,
From Montana's SEACORD (MT) back to COASTER (MD) Maryland,
From Dakota's CATMORE (SD) to Carolina's MEAT ROD (SC),
Wordplay on land and sea-to-sea.

I took Rex walking, with my aim CURB SPANIEL,
And avoided stepping on any BARN SPICULE.
I'm no longer paying that PANIC'S RUBLE.
Anagrams define the GOP.

As Rex was walking (he's a sad RED MASCOT),
He took the trail of that pail of CREAM DOTS,
At the border, sleeping, kids not on MADRE COTS,
Angry words hide a travesty.

This land is our land, you claim it's your land,
Two battling versions - adore/abhor land,
A former wise land, now a polarized land,
Let's heal the animosity.
You can review our collection of silly songs and satire at ... "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE". As a particular treat, you can find almost 150 names of American anagram-towns derived from our words-of-interest. And there is also a Canadian twist for those interested. (Search the blog for 'anagrams')
