Wastin' Away Again In Obamaville - Poem by James B. Earley

(Sung to the tune of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville)

Crim'nals in Congress
At permanent recess
On some junket...spending spree
Us in the backdrop
Romney flip-flops
Super PAC's defining...who we should be

Chorus: Wastin' away again in Obamaville
...Wonderin' which thief...hijacked the vault
Some people claim...Bush is to blame
.....But I know..It's Dick Cheney's fault

Judicial infusions
...Penis intrusions
Corporations are people...they'd have us perceive
Governed by nitwits
Society's misfits
Their feet up our asses..still we chose to believe

Wastin' away again in Obamaville
...Wonderin' which thief...hijacked the vault
Some people claim...Bush is to blame
.....But I know..It's Dick Cheney's fault

Lies about Iraq
....No bid contracts
Putt'n money in pockets of deliberate few
Economy in doldrums
Political breadcrumbs
Ninety-nine percent...starving anew

Wastin' away again in Obamaville
...Wonderin' which thief...hijacked the vault
Some people claim...Bush is to blame
.....But I know..It's Dick Cheney's fault

Barack in the middle
Caught in a piddle
Try'n to deliver what he promised we'd have
Congressional mishmash
Conservative backlash
Screw'n us eagerly without any salve

Wastin' away again in Obamaville
...Wonderin' which thief...hijacked the vault
Some people claim...Bush is to blame
.....But I know..It's Dick Cheney's fault

I don't know the reason
Some folks believe'n
That skin tone matters to those at the top
Money's the potion
'They're all garbage'...the notion
WE'VE got somethin' in common...let's fight till we drop

Wastin' away again in Obamaville
Wonderin' which thief...hijacked the vault
Some people claim...Bush is to blame
.....But I know..it's Dick Cheney's fault
Some people claim...Bush is to blame
.....But I know..it's Dick Cheney's fault
