The Kochs are two vermin

Limbaugh needs wormin’

They spread their disease like ebola

Ingraham’s a slag

Coulter’s in drag

And none of ‘em knows shit from shinola

Rush Limbaugh Cartoon by Ian D. Marsden of mar...

Beck is a prick

Hume is a dick

O’Reilly’s a tick on humanity

Murdoch’s a ghoul

Asman’s a tool

And speaking of tools there is Hannity


And of course Roger Ailes

Next to him Goebbels pales

The architect of Murdoch’s empire

An expert in fear

In the lie and the smear

Propaganda’s most consummate liar


I’d like to pause here

To mention the fear

These traitors must feel upon waking

Lest their listeners get wise

To their bullshit, their lies,

The destruction in which they’re partaking


This sham, this pretense

At a nation’s expense

Lying shamelessly and with a straight face

Knowing people believe

All the falsehoods they weave

For they’re “news” ain’t they – and a disgrace


So my wish for the season

(And I think I’ve good reason)

Is round all these creeps up and haul

Them off to the slam to

The people they’ve damned who

Would do them like they’ve done us all.

  1. You put your metaphoric paintbrush into the mess and paint us a picture of the graft, sickness and corruption. What an unholy mess. It’s disgusting what they’ve done and continue to do.
