The Farmer Buys a Dell

On the farmer with a Dell,
G.W. cast his spell,
Hi-ho, John Kerry-o,
You couldn't ring the bell.

Dick Chaney's head did swell,
Neocons don't kiss and tell,
Hi-ho, to war we go,
The Country's gone to hell.

The lesbian takes a wife,
She risks domestic strife,
Hi-ho, a scandal-o,
No gay should have a life.

The couple has a child,
Gay couple is reviled,
Hi-ho, no marriage-o,
Matrimony can't be defiled.

The child starts to nurse,
Now, what could be worse,
Hi-ho, the consequences-o,
The child must bear a curse.

The nurse takes the vow,
The household takes a bow,
Hi-ho, the outrage-o,
And society has a cow.

Milk Cow cartoon cow cow mooing

The Nation stands alone,
The Big Cheese and his Clone,
Hi-ho, the rich do grow,
The rest of us just groan.

Compassionate Conservative Dick Cheney President Bush sucking his thumb

William's Whimsical Words:

What business is it of yours who someone else chooses to marry?
