I think what this pandemic was lacking is a song, a tune that the people can hum. Therefore, to fill the current need, I have adapted an old favorite, with new (improved) lyrics.
I present to you, “Battle Against The Public”.
[sung to the tune of the famous song, Battle Hymn of the Republic]
Mine ears have heard the glory of the
Omniscient, Orange Lord
He is trampling on the facts
About the PPE we’ve stored
He hath loosed the fateful virus
By the terrible signs, ignored
His untruth is marching on!
Story, story, tell it to ya!
It ain’t no worse than the flu… duh!
Praise him or he’ll remove ya!
Our Nonsense marching on!
I have seen His message echoed in the
Online, Right-Wing camps,
They have builded Him an altar
Where truth‘s secured with iron clamps;
See through His dimwit message
By the light of Logic’s lamps
His toupée is marching on!
Friends, who you thought really knew ya!
Tell you it’s a hoax, come to screw ya!
Sit and wait at home, like Buddha!
His Orange is marching on!
I have read a fiery gospel, writ
In CAPS of angry steel:
“Those who deal with My opponents,
Get respirators that might heal”
Let the Orange Nero, play the fiddle
Let Americans all kneel
Trump is God and nothing’s wrong!
Derogatory, press is unfair to ya!
Common sense has got the blues-a!
From Miami and NY to Chattanooga!
The virus marches on!
He has sounded forth the trumpet
By Easter, we will have it beat;
Well, never mind… but admit,
That the idea was pretty neat!
Doctors say… he’s a mo-ron!
Gory, the doctors all conclude-a!
Fateful end, you’ll come to-a!
On breath machine, you’ll turn blue-a!
The buck He’s passing on!
In reports that came from China,
South Korea, Italy
The Donald was duly warned
Of illness, born across the sea,
With mighty golf club in his hand,
He said “Let’s wait and see”
As He lied to make men wealthy,
Let us try to make men see,
While the President blathers on!
Glory, brave souls who blew the!
Whistle, sorry no supplies get to ya!
Your on your own, He never knew ya!
Our health care, shat upon!
