Questions and Answers


The “brilliant minds” of Dubbyah and Dick Cheyney
On philosophic questions, they have answers one too many
They go out of their way to make it their biz
To answer the religious question of who the one real God is

On the question of evolution, Pastor Huckabee with no compunction
Explains it was simply Mister Darwin’s brain mal-function
On the question of Creationism, Hucakabee happily drools
His answer, “It should be taught in all the schools”

When a question is asked on how to help our country progress
Our right wing philosophers answer, “Just stifle Congress”
Socrates and Plato those soul searching sleuths
Unlike our wrong right wingers, searched for truths

With arrogance our leaders have answers galore
They’ve solved all our problems, of that they are sure
But for them, the solve that would be most rewarding
Spinning the morality of in-humane water-boarding
