New Hampshire: a white-wing wing dinger
(Think white-wing’s a slip of the finger?)
The circus rolled in
The seals flapped their fins
Hoping to hear that ka-ching-a
We watched as they tried to devour
Each other in their finest hour
Ricks – dumb and Newt vicious
Mitt, Ron, All: suspicious
Of whatever gives working folks power
Mitt tried so hard not to look fake
Perry to just stay awake
Ron said some shit
John leveled Mitt
And Santorum thought “oh for God’s sake”
Their issues had utmost importance
Religion, gay marriage, abortions
Jobs got lip service
(Real plans make them nervous)
But they’ll brand it conservative caution
Ron Paul – whose mind can be lunar
Made some good points but no sooner
Said Gov funds – no way
Ron, if there’s no FDA
You’ll cull the roach body parts from my tuna?
They said cutting tax is quite viable
(Though taxes are there in their bible)
Newt did pontificate
At least Paul said it straight
And both Ricks appeared certifiable
Perry finally woke and looked quizzical
John Huntsman discovered he’s visible
He and Newt: no ifs, buts –
Both leapt for Mitt’s nuts
As sideshows go it was quite risible
Did I mention that Newtie was vicious?
That for breakfast Rick had loaves and fishes?
Sheesh, they’re all just so white
And so Christian-Lite
That none of them know what a knish is
We we’re there Hampshire – it was a honey
We knew that this show would be money
You’re the tops on the bill
You’re clowns who can kill
But for now we’ll just settle for funny.
