POLITICAL SUICIDE

Copyright 2017 Robert E. Shandor
 

Here you stand right next to me

Tryin’ to sell your philosophy

Trading fact for fiction, no truth in its views

Must’a been concocted by those folks at Faux News

 

You say you’re good with frackin’, dumpin’ toxic waste

I think you’re lyin’, right to my face

You’ll try to justify it, you’ll push real hard

As long as it’s not happ’nen’ in your backyard

 

Most of what you say is not backed by proof

You’re content to build a house that has no roof

Still you’ll try to sell it, closets packed with lies

Knowin’ it’s nothing but scrapwood in disguise

 

This tale you tell, it has more holes

Than did both Bonnie and Clyde

You need to rethink everything you say

‘Cause this is just political suicide

 

Because you say it doesn’t make it fact

Can’t you understand opinion’s just that

I’ll never come on board with what you describe

When you beat me with it in a diatribe

 

Bullying will never yield my compliance

Your denials can’t change the facts of science

Repetition won’t bring me a change of heart

When you tell me only lies from the very start

 

So, here you stand in front of me

Still hopin’ to push your philosophy

Trading fact for fiction, no truth in its views

Must’a been concocted by those folks at Faux News

 

This tale you tell, it has more holes

Than did both Bonnie and Clyde

You need to rethink everything you say

‘Cause this is just political suicide

 

This tale you tell, it has more holes

Than did both Bonnie and Clyde

You need to rethink everything you say

‘Cause this is just political suicide

 

Just political suicide
