On Episode 314 of The Tim Corrimal Show we celebrate Halloween with an “Ode to the GOP Halloween Clowns”:
They roam the night this time of year
To feast upon your brains
The seers of doom, with tales of fear
The end is near, they claim!
They hunger for your very soul,
They crave your bones and flesh
They never seem to get enough
Their pits are bottomless
For centuries they sucked our blood
And terrorized our towns
They’re known by many names you know,
Republicans, Tea Clowns
They come in many forms and shapes
They offer circuses and bread
They say they’ll help you, make you rich,
Then leave you to the dead!
One comes as Christie, large and loud
He blocks your bridge and mocks
Another comes as Voldemort,
You know him as Rick Scott
Another glows all orange bright,
The Speaker of the House!
To us he growls, barks, and cries
But to his ghoul friends he’s a mouse.
Some dress in robes like reapers,
With their bony hands outstretched,
“Your civil rights are dead”, they screech,
“Your Constitution wrecked!”
But the worst of them we never see
They hide in behind their cloaks,
They feed the beasts and fires of hell
They are the Brothers Koch.
And soon they’ll knock upon your door,
They’ll ask you for your vote
They’ll promise treats but give you tricks
Then throw you in the moat.
They’ll scare you with Ebola,
Or Islamic terrorists,
They’ll promise to protect you,
From harm and all of this.
But all they really want is power,
Fame and cash and more,
And all you get is pain and debt,
And endless years of war.
So listen friends, you are forewarned,
With my scary little rhyme,
Get out and vote, defeat these ghouls
And tell them “not this time!”
