Alt-Majority Nursery Rhymes: Book Two

Every time I think I've gone too far,
I read the paper and realize I haven't gone far enough.

Pence's poodle sat in the hall.
Pence's poodle had no say at all.
All Bannon's minions and all Conway's men
wouldn't let poor poodle in the office again.

There was a crooked man and he had a crooked style.
He and Pence sold nonsense with bigotry and bile,
They cooked crooked schemes in a crooked white house,
sent lackey lawyers to concoct a crooked courthouse.

A-tisket, a-tasket
Donny's protection racket.
His midnight tweet,
NATO's obsolete.
Pay what you owe for US ammo
or you're gonna wear Putin's team jacket.

Itsy Betsy De-Vos now has clout.
Public education is on the way out.
You'll get the private school voucher option
if you're white, entitled and Christian.

Mitch McConnell had a farm
Women talking set off an alarm
with a Scott King there and a Warren too
he was afraid to let them say "BOO!"
so the US Senate could be safe from harm.

There is an old woman who lives in a shoe.
Bannon's got her worried because she's a Jew.
Jews on Remembrance Day somehow got lost.
Repubs can't say, Jews killed in Holocaust.

Diddle, diddle dumpling, honcho Don
goes to work with his bathrobe on,
views TV for next day's con,
thinks V. Putin's a paragon,
diddle, diddle, dumpling, honcho Don
