George Bush's Fault

“The Scapegoat” by William Holman Hunt (1854)
George Bush's Fault
What we can learn from the presidency
of the much maligned George W. Bush.

“Polar bears now all are drowning,

hurricanes and storms assault,

bees are dying in their hives,

and it's all George Bush's fault.”

“Fire now is melting steel,

those airplanes he didn't halt,

9-11 was an inside job,

and it's all George Bush's fault.”

“There's no Universal Healthcare,

there's no distributive vault,

there's no Socialist Utopia,

and it's all George Bush's fault.”

Each traitor co-opting crisis,

each loon's conspiracy gestalt,

he countered with just his “New Tone”,

so it is George Bush's fault.

Americans, please harken closely:

to earn and keep your salt,

learn that Socialists are not your friends,

learn from George Bush's fault.
