Rush Limbaugh had a horrid fright
A dream that kept him up all night
That FDR came back that day
And found the jobs Bush threw away
He dreamt there was a new New Deal
So many jobs – it was too real
New roads and rails and schools and this
An educated populace
Educate these people? Damn!
Then they’ll figure out our scam
And shit – if things improve – than what?
Less drugs? Less crime? that’s not so hot
He dreamt that pot was legalized
Thus prisons closed or way downsized
The money saved then used for schools
Oh fuck – this really was not cool
He dreamt we got the money out
Of politics and that no doubt
Was the most absolute last straw
No Superpacs! – it dropped his jaw
We’d repealed Citizen’s United
This gave old Rush such a terrible fright it
Made him bolt straight upright
Holy crap – what a terrible night!
He told Norquist of this great scare
A level playing field? Not fair!
They’d always hated FDR
The New Deal was their pet bete noir
Neocons blanched when they all heard
Build roads and rails and schools – absurd
This new New Deal will screw our scene
Next thing you know they’ll vote “go green”
Demand we get off oil’s teat
A policy we can’t permit
At stake is way way too much wealth
To care about this planet’s health
This money must stay in our drawers
P.S. our biggest earner’s wars
Oh Rush whatever else you do
Please say your nightmare won’t come true.
Please tell us there’s no new New Deal
How good that news will make us feel
Please tell us we can keep the bucks
We’ve taken from the working schmucks
Please tell us they will never learn
That money is our sole concern
That we don’t care what harm we do
That their dreams too will ne’er come true
