President Obama, please say something - either way in 2018 we will.


Protect us from this evil wretch
Stand up for what is right
Please if and when it happens
Please put up our fight

Then when the voters said thier peace
And all was all for not
The devil visited the Orator and
the people house turned white hot

Capitulated and careful footed
Our hero Orator was muted

Muted, muted, muted

We thought the ocean was rising from climate change
Turns out it was high tide for 8 years
The awful stench of death and rot appear
During the low tide of our fears
Now we're getting payback in arrears
Wait till the next Olympics
Get us through this time
Dream of not having campaigns
Take up collecting wine, or whiskey...
whichever takes me from
worried to "I don't give a shit" as fast as possible
It's a new day for payback
Wait it out, midterms arrive
Soon enough
it will be enough
will it be enough?

2018 campaigns start in the spring
It's a new day for payback
