The Ballad of the Koch Brothers or: A Line of This Koch Can Kill Ya

Delana MartinThe Koch brothers, richer than Croesus

“Never enough” is their thesis

Their gold is behind

The Republican mind

In their ongoing efforts to fleece us

Their biz ranks top ten in pollution

Greed is their main attribution

They bankroll their suitors

The political polluters

Who desecrate our Constitution



They’re cold money-grabbers for sure oh

But what they’ve got billions can’t cure tho’

They kneel down and pray

To their Gods every day

The Dollar, the Yuan, and the Euro

To show you their rank in the greedy

They back slashing funds for the needy

The poor can fuck off

The pigs run the trough

And the Kochs are big pigs yes indeedy




They’re the backers of Tea Party Nation

Cato, and Mercatus too

American’s For Prosperity Foundation

(Which prosperity does not include you)

They back climate science denial

Help promote acid rain as “a myth”

Anything that will add to their pile

That’s what they’re for, who they’re with


They                    Are                    Scum


Thief!                    I                       Shout


Tak –                    ing                     From


Those                  With-                  Out




Not one of us minds that you’ve wealth

(Except that some just might be pelf)

It’s how the wealth’s used

To further abuse

He who can not help himself

And now your “Kochtopus” network

Sets about all your selfish pet work

So Obama will fail

Your House dupes derail

Uncaring that no one can get work


You                    Are                     Scum


Thief!                   I                        Cry


Here’s                 My                    Thumb


In                       Your                     Eye

  1. I know I shouldn’t be laughing so hard, but I can’t help it. I’m glad to have you here keeping me from crying. I fear for our country, but you give me hope.

  2. Good God, man! All of this is just swimming around in your brain until you summons it? Brilliant. As usual.

  4. Branching out far and wide to the dark and seedy of the political body.
    Though really, it seems the best material comes from around the spinchter of said body…
