A Seussical Take on Cap and Trade

You know I always love a good poem about politics. Here is another one sure to please!

“ Uncle-Sam-I-Am “

By Katy Zastrow DuBois

“Cap and Trade, Cap and Trade
Don’t you like the deals I’ve made?
I’m Obama, yes I am
And I’m your brand new Uncle Sam”
( WE’RE THE PEOPLE! Yes we are!
You haven’t listened much, so far! )
Cap and Trade, Cap and Trade
I do not like the deals you’ve made
I think they’re all just Crap and Scam
I do not like them Uncle Sam

“Don’t you want less green-house gas?
Don’t you want Health Care to pass?
Don’t you want to go all ‘green’?
Don’t you like what all you’ve seen?
Fund my programs, YES WE CAN
Trust me- I’m your Uncle Sam”
The gas this will effect so far
Is how much I’ll pay to drive my car!
Funding with the Health Care Bill
Will cost the working stiffs more still!
I do not want to fund your stuff
Of you, I think we’ve had enough!
I think it’s all just Crap and Scam
I do not trust you, Uncle Sam

“Would you, could you, love new jobs?
Don’t worry who it really robs!
You didn’t like my ‘Green Jobs Czar’
I’ve tried to CHANGE it all so far!
Don’t you BELIEVE it’s not a scam?
Don’t you have HOPE in Uncle Sam?”
Just who is it you want to please?
The new jobs will go overseas!
The jobs will move from higher tax
Domestic workers get the ax!
I BELIEVE you’ll put us in a jam
I think you’re HOPELESS, Uncle Sam!

“Try not to be Rejectionists!
You sound just like Protectionists!
You need to have a ‘global view’
So what if all this hurts a few?
Why all the fuss? Why give a damn?
I know what’s best, I’m Uncle Sam!”
You think you have a ‘global view‘?
WE’RE on this ‘globe‘, it hurts us too!
You’ll cost us all and make it hard
You’re crapping in your own back yard!
You took an oath- What does that mean?
Not very much, from what we’ve seen
But we have figured out the score
You push for power-you want more
It’s obvious you won’t relent
Until you have big government
You say it’s just the need for ‘green’?
So get rid of your limousine!
If you were so involved with that
You’d cut down your own thermostat!
And let us not too soon forget
The gas to fly Pelosi’s jet-
The cost for THAT will really soar
And yet you’ll burden us with more!
40 billion more in added tax
You think that we don’t know the facts?
YOU’VE GOT A PLAN! You’ve got it set!
You’re only racking up more debt!
Electric bills will go sky high
So this is how you’ll SHARE THE PIE?
And THOSE WHO ARE COMING UP BEHIND
Will pay the price, and they WILL mind
You really just want more control
You’ll dig us in a bigger hole!
You see, I am a realist
Who see’s that you’re a Socialist
Chavez! Obama! You’re just the same
But we will beat you at your game
For if we let you have your way
You’d have us be the USSA
But it’s still AMERICA! ( Last time I checked )
A country you have not yet wrecked!
Your legacy will never fade
If we get stuck with Cap and Trade
But you’re about your power and fame
As presidents go, you’re pretty lame
SO HEAR US LOUD! NO CRAP AND SCAM!
And we will fight this, Uncle Sam!

Another spiffy poem . . . Barry, Barry Whatcha’ Do-ing

I am so happy to have found out who wrote the excellent Night Before Elections – Katy DuBois. Wanted to make sure to give proper credit now that I know!

barack-obama

She has another poem that she shared with me that I would love to post.

Following my recent poems, “Twas The Night Before Elections ” and “The ‘Bama Pokey”, I swore off writing another. But then, I found I just couldn’t help myself!

Here is another “obnoxious” poem to be sung to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic:

“Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?”
by Katy Zastrow DuBois

We lived through this election
And they didn’t pick our guy-
Instead they picked Obama
Who will make our taxes high!
I guess we’ll give democracy
A big ‘ole fat goodbye!
But Truth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
You’ll take a nation proud
And you’ll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

They had the Panthers at the polls
They had  Acorn on the street
If you run an honest campaign
Then I guess you can’t compete
Integrity from candidates
Will lead to their defeat
ButTruth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
You’ll take a nation proud
And you’ll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

Defense cuts he’s supported
Hurts our military so!
It keeps from them necessities
For combat when they go
The media smoothes it over
So the public doesn’t know
But Truth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
You’ll take a nation proud
And you’ll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

His associates are nasty
And they make me want to gag!
They disrespect our country
And they desecrate the flag
But hush, don’t speak against him
Or your mouth will get the gag
But Truth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
You’ll take a nation proud
And you’ll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

Four years in the future
We will vote him out the door
He could catch a ride with Teddy
( Can we ‘vote out’ Michael Moore? )
He’ll claim ” I couldn’t do it all,
So could I have four more? ”
But Truth keeps marching on!

( Chorus )
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
You’ll take a nation proud
And you’ll top it with a shroud
But Truth keeps marching on!

If you do not want a candidate
That you will just abhor
Please call your local GOP
They need your help and more!
We’ve only lost this battle
BUT WE HAVEN’T LOST THE WAR!
Keep  TRUTH still marching on!

Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
Barry, Barry! What ‘cha do-ing?
We’ll always have our pride
And we’ll never run and hide
We’re TRUTH still marching on!

Twas the Night Before Election – 2008

‘Twas the night before election
And all through the town
Tempers were flaring
Emotions all up and down!
I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap
Had cut off the TV
Tired of political crap.
When all of a sudden
There arose such a noise
I peered out of my window
Saw Obama and his boys
They had come for my wallet
They wanted my pay
To give to the others
Who had not worked a day!
He snatched up my money
And quick as a wink
Jumped back on his bandwagon
As I gagged from the stink
He then rallied his henchmen
Who were pulling his cart
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!
‘On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers!
On Acorn, On Pelosi’
He screamed at the pairs!
They took off for his cause
And as he flew out of sight
I heard him laugh at the nation
Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!
So I leave you to think
On this one final note-
IF YOU DON’T WANT SOCIALISM
GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!
